NEW YORK - (AP) - Hillary Clinton has delivered what are expected to be her final remarks of the presidential election after a devastating loss to Donald Trump.
    
She's urging her supporters to accept the results, saying they owe Trump an "open mind" and a "chance to lead." She says American democracy depends on "peaceful transition of power."
    
Speaking to supporters Wednesday at a New York hotel, Clinton said the campaign has been "one of the greatest honors" of her life. She describes the outcome as "painful," but says the effort was not about her but "the country we love."
    
Clinton took the stage to sustained applause.
    
Ashen-faced aides sat in the front row as supporters in the audience sobbed at the emotional event.
