A former aide to Hillary Clinton has seen her up close and personal. She’s been there for the big deliberations and decisions.

So perhaps Neera Tanden, who is now president of the Center for American Progress, should be asked why she told Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that Hillary’s instincts can be “terrible.”

In emails exchanged in September 2015 and released today, the two aired concerns about Hillary’s campaign.


Podesta wrote:

We are still way more likely than not to win nomination. We’ve taken on a lot of water that won’t be easy to pump out of the boat.

Most of that has to do with terrible decisions made pre-campaign, but a lot has to do with her instincts. She’s nervous so prepping more and performing better.

Got to do something to pump up excitement but not certain how to do that.

Tanden wrote back on the same day, “You know I’m not a sycophant to you by any means. But the thing that makes me most confident she will prevail is that you are there.

“Almost no one knows better me that her instincts can be terrible.”

Here’s the original email, courtesy of Wikileaks.

What do you say CNN, MSNBC and Fox News?

Voters deserve to know why one of Hillary’s former aides thinks her instincts can be “terrible.”

  • Neurological disorders?

    Because her mind is never on the issues.. she is in another world, day dreaming all the time. She has yet to make an intelligent decision in her worth less career? But right now if the democrats nominate a mule for high office, the demoturds in the north east will vote for him? Yes that’s how mentally unstable they are. Thank You.

    Lyin’ Crooked Cankles OWN people thinks she is not freaking stable !

    She can not be trusted with the nuclear code !!

  • Hillary’s legion of doctors and nurses finally figured out that dependence upon Valium was not such a good idea for a chronically *snoozy* patient. Ever since, they’ve give her Dexadrine … the Cadillac of pharmaceutical amphetamines.
    Instead of the Manchurian Candidate, Baraq Hussein Obama, we have the Pharmaceutical Candidate – HRC.

  • Wow. Just more confirmation hillary is as terrible as we know her to be.

  • Rickety Janes

    Actually the next line is the real bust: “She has to give time for new things to take hold” because she’s a moron.
