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.
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.”

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.”
