The 2016 presidential election rewrote the rules. It was historic, divisive, confounding and at almost every turn defied prediction. Clinton was the first female presidential nominee determined to shatter the ultimate glass ceiling, winning the popular vote but losing the election. Trump, a billionaire businessman and former reality TV star, promised to fix Washington and won the coveted office.
