A reporter recently posed the question to Hillary Clinton that has been on many people’s minds for months: How is she getting beaten by a self-avowed socialist?
“As you’re closing the gap here in New Hampshire, we all know anything can happen, but how is it that a socialist could even be within striking distance of you, let alone beating you?,” the reported queried.
Clinton responded with an awkward laugh, “Well, I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, I’m just going to keep working as hard as I can…”
A Sanders win would come on top of the photo finish in Iowa last week, the final tally of which is still in dispute.
Politico reported Monday that members of Clinton’s campaign staff have been frustrated by the drag created on her candidacy by the email scandal. According to the report…
The candidate blamed her team for not getting her out of the mess quickly, and her team blamed Clinton for being stubbornly unwilling to take the advice of campaign chairman John Podesta and others to apologize, turn over her server and move on.
The entire experience made her a deeply vulnerable front-runner out of the gate and underscored a lack of trust between Clinton and her operatives, many of whom were former Obama staffers that she didn’t consider part of her inner circle of trust.
Her advisers were also frustrated by having to play roles for which they hadn’t been hired and were ill-suited. From the beginning, [pollster and strategist Joel] Benenson was frustrated that he was forced to split his time between defending his boss on emails and defining a path for her candidacy.
According to Politico, sources in the Clinton campaign indicated there will likely be a staff shake-up after New Hampshire, which the candidate has denied, though conceding, “We’re going to take stock” of what works.
