Hillary Clinton's loss to President-elect Donald Trump eight days ago was not an overwhelming rejection, considering she did win the popular vote, MSNBC's Chuck Todd noted. Still, he said Wednesday, her name is hardly being mentioned by fellow Democrats.

"It's as if she just disappeared," Todd said on "MTP Daily."

Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have dominated the Democratic Party for the past 30 years, Todd said, but added, they have "kind of evaporated in the past week."

Clinton is not only receiving little public criticism, she also has not had anyone rallying around her, he said.

"It's all very quiet, subdued, muted even," Todd said. "This election wasn't a wholesale rejection of a candidate like McGovern, Mondale or Dukakis. But even though she didn't get wiped out on the electoral map, it seems like the Clintons are being quietly wiped off the map in Democratic politics."

Rather than a public "excommunication" like 1988 Democratic nominee Michael Dukakis or one-term President Jimmy Carter received, "it’s just quiet," he said. "No rallying, no nothing. Just hoping if you don't say the name, like Beetlejuice, it just never appears."

Clinton is making her first public appearance Wednesday night since her concession speech one week ago. She is speaking to the Children's Defense Fund dinner in Washington, D.C., where she is being honored for her work on children's issues.
