Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Friday she was sorry that her use of a personal email account while secretary of state had caused confusion, and blamed herself for “not thinking a lot” about the matter when she took the job.

In her most contrite comments yet about an issue that has plagued her White House bid, Clinton said she had made a mistake by not using a government email account.
