It was an emotional moment. But it suggested she realized how tough it may now be for her to become the Democratic nominee and seemed she was bracing for the end.

Spokesman Howard Wolfson on tonights debate said in a statement sent with the clip,

What we saw in the final moments in that debate is why Hillary Clinton is the next President of the United States. Her strength, her life experience, her compassion. She’s tested and ready. It was the moment she retook the reins of this race and showed women and men why she is the best choice.
