Clinton Campaign Dogged By Infighting, Overconfidence


Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign was dogged by power struggles and overly optimistic expectations on its way to a surprise defeat by President Trump, according to a newly released book on Clinton’s failed run reviewed on The Hill.

“Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” by Sidewire’s Jonathan Allen and The Hill’s Amie Parnes, chronicles the inner workings of the Clinton campaign. The book follows repeated missteps from Clinton, her staff and Democratic allies, nearly all of whom expected Clinton to handily win the Oval Office in November.

The book goes through the night of Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 presidential election, which was widely expected to be a victory for the former Democratic presidential nominee. But as the results continued to come in, that outcome started to look less and less likely.“Shattered” includes three momentous calls Clinton took on the night of the election. In the first, with former President Obama, Obama urged Clinton to concede to her rival.

Then Clinton called Trump, conceding the race to him and ending her campaign.

After acknowledging her defeat, according to the book, Clinton took a call from Obama and apologized for losing.

When Clinton received the call, handed to her by aide Huma Abedin, she realized how many people she had let down by botching the race.

“Mr. President,” Clinton said when she got on the phone with Obama. “I’m sorry.”

On the night of her defeat, Clinton pushed for a conciliatory concession speech.

“Look, I really just want to concede gracefully, wish him the best, thank everybody, and get off the stage,” she said. “This is not a moment for me to do more than that.” Read more at The Hill.



  1. Mrs. Clinton lost because those deplorable evil white bigoted racist Republicans hired the Russians to hack into the voting booths and steal the election. Plain & simple.

  2. Clinton lost because she was sorrounded by Jew haters from huma to al Sharpthon. It’s the Orthodox Jews that voted for Trump while the self hating secular Jews voted for Hillary.

    Angry much? Maybe if Mrs Clinton tried to earn votes instead of insulting the electorate, we might have a different outcome. Enough with the name calling, it’s really childish.

  4. nfgo3,

    Please take something to stop spouting your wild nightmares. You’re just repeating the failed idiocy that led to the downfall of evil liar criminal Hillary.
