Hillary Clinton, the first woman to ever win the popular vote in a U.S. presidential election, is back for 2020, but only in documentary form.

A new Hulu doc, called Hillary, will chronicle how one of the most qualified candidates in U.S. history lost the election to one of the least qualified humans for any job in the entire history of mankind (spoiler alert: it may have been the lack of a penis) and look back at Clinton’s pre-election life, including her time as Secretary of State and, probably, that other time she ran for president. In promotional interviews for the documentary, Clinton discussed her longstanding position as a lightning rod for public perceptions of women in positions of power:

“I became a kind of Rorschach test for women and women’s roles as soon as I burst on the public scene when Bill was running for president,” she said. “You know, I lived for more that 40 years before that and I had no real understanding of what it really meant to be thrust into this highest, brightest platform and try to live your life and kind of go along with what you’ve always done.”
