Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonWasserman Schultz to Sanders: Dems are already a grassroots party Comey: FBI is 'not on anybody's side' White House extends Obama executive order on cyber threats MORE on Thursday compared the presidential election to the Chicago Cubs’ historic World Series victory in a nod to the possibility that she’ll be the country's first female president.
Clinton, who grew up in the Chicago suburb of Park Ridge, Ill., recounted watching games with her father and visiting Wrigley Field while growing up. The Cubs hadn't won a World Series in 108 years.
“I was a little anxious because the Cubs were in the World Series,” Clinton said of her feelings Wednesday night. “It’s been a long time, 108 years to win a championship and make history, so last night was very special on lots of fronts.”
