The Downfall of Hillary Clinton

Joshua Green, writing in The Atlantic, reveals what brought down the Hillary campaign. Taking advantage of access to a lot of internal campaign emails and memos, Green paints a picture of a campaign in chaos, beginning at the top.

In fact, she never behaved like a chief executive, and her own staff proved to be her Achilles’ heel. What is clear from the internal documents is that Clinton’s loss derived not from any specific decision she made but rather from the preponderance of the many she did not make. Her hesitancy and habit of avoiding hard choices exacted a price that eventually sank her chances at the presidency.

It’s a fascinating insight into what was really going on inside Hillary’s inner circle of advisors — and the lack of her own decisive leadership that allowed the campaign to spin out of control.

If this is any indication of the kind of President Hillary would be, we can thank Obama for knocking her out of the race.
