January 20 could have been the afternoon she stepped into the Oval Office, becoming the first female President of the United States.
Instead, she had to watch as her opponent went through the motions of his inauguration ceremony .
But while everyone else was looking at the stage, her husband Bill Clinton was gazing in an entirely different direction and appeared to be biting his lip.
Those posting the clip to social media, who were watching the inauguration at the time, seem to think he is looking in the direction of Ivanka Trump - but nobody knows that for certain.
The cameras were focused on him and caught every nuance of his movement - and so did his wife, even though he was completely oblivious to it.
In the video, which is being widely shared on social media, Hillary Clinton turns to her right to look at her husband - but notices his attention is elsewhere.
Giving him the type of look a wife will regularly give her spouse, she stares at him with fiery eyes, no doubt thinking he will notice and be forced to look away.
Unfortunately for Bill, he didn't seem to be at all aware of the daggers his wife is giving him and she eventually is forced to look back at the stage.
