Skip to comments.PR boss Jennifer Palmieri: ‘We reduced Hillary to a female facsimile of a male president’

If Jennifer Palmieri could turn back the clock, and make one change to Hillary Clintons campaign, what would it be? I can guess any number of answers when I put the question to the campaigns communications director, but not the one she gives.
I would have spent more time and money, she replies without hesitation, in Texas, Arizona and Georgia.
Palmieris explanation makes perfect sense. She says they made the classic mistake of devoting their energy to the swing states of previous elections, such as Ohio, while overlooking historically safe Republican states now becoming winnable due to shifting demographics. Its a clever answer analytic, pragmatic, strategic; everything, in other words, we associate the Clinton campaign. What also makes it quintessentially perhaps calamitously Clintonesque, however, is its failure to strike any kind of emotional chord.
Palmieri was 24 when she first worked in the White House, for Bill Clinton. Under Barack Obama she became director of communications and in 2015 she joined Hillarys campaign team. The 51-year-old has dedicated her life to the Democrats and, had about 80,000 Americans voted differently in November 2016, she would now be in the White House again. Instead, Palmieri is in London, promoting her book about what went wrong.
There is nothing colourless or dry about Dear Madam President. In person, its author is forthright, quick-witted and doesnt mince her words. She describes Donald Trump as a dangerous, unstable, racist misogynist, looks on the verge of tears at times, and can be very funny....

Hillary was NOT “fixab!e.” They started with a flawed product and ended with a disaster.
I submit two Youtubes for your evaluation in this matter oh wise and truthful 2ndDivisionVet:
Male and female discussions on survival. Only a minute long each. Enjoy!
The projection is fascinating - shes decribing Hillary Clinton to a t.
They really won’t let it go will they?
How about "sent over a goon and stomped Zdenek Gazda's phone on 9/11/2016 before he could tweet Hillary getting the vapors."
I thought their real failure was not being able to present Hillary as a believable facsimile of a human being.
When I get depressed, I watch the Election Night videos on YouTube, nothing funnier. They start out at 7 pm thinking she will win in a wide margin according to the flawed exit polls released at 5 pm, start getting worried at 8:30 when Florida hasn’t been called, and then turn to anger and bewilderment about 10 pm when the brilliant Nate Silver goes from “Hillary has an 82 percent chance of winning” to “the betting markets have Trump the favorite”. Notice the writing style of little bitter Miss Palmieri - a lot of baseless name calling - racist, sexist, misogynist. Well, my name for you and one that I can back up with statistics, dear, is “Loser”.
She didn’t win, because we didn’t want her to be president. It’s really that simple.
She’s an awful person, she isn’t a leader in any way shape or form, she’s nuts, crazy, arrogant, psychotic, a stalker... I could go on and on.
Please keep the worlds smartest and most qualified woman to yourself. No one wants her, mk?
Humpty Hillary sat on a wall...
Maybe it's as simple as America said 'no' ... despite the fact that every illicit lever of power was pulled to make up for what she isn't? The woman is just an average uncharismatic alcoholic singaller hypnotized by her own grandiosity and entitlement - a personality disordered frail old woman with a self serving strong drive for power?
The more remarkable thing is that she got so far ... not that she didn't cross the finish line. That she got so far reveals a weakness of the country, not her own virtue. Even serial killers show ambition, cunning, drive and focus ... but it's not praiseworthy ... those things are only praiseworthy when coupled with character and actual leadership towards something positive.
Go away already! Go away 30 years ago!

Not that anyone asked me, but my suggestion would have been to just get rid of Hillary. Period.
Replace her with literally anyone. Joe Biden would have motivated the blue-collar union guys. Bernie Sanders would have motivated the let’s-pretend socialists. Oprah Winfrey would have motivated the people who sit around and watch TV all day.
Yep. Anyone but Hillary.
Hillary supporters crying never gets old.
Way back when, my suggestion was she had to be presentable, which meant a face lift and a fat farm.
She looked half way decent at the debates but everywhere else she was a schlump - she looked old\haggard and had no energy.
Palmieri is nuts. They couldn’t have gotten GA\TX at any price. They could have had a shot at AZ.
Stay sexy, Jen.
Gak! You just scared a year off my life.
Forget the REd States- She didn’t spend any time in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
The endless navel gazing by the left and why she lost is boring. To me it was more Donald Trump winning than Hillary losing. He outworked her and ran a better campaign. One day I expect he will write a book on how he did it and I think it will have more insight than all of the whining Hillary has done.
Suggestion: Watch the “MAGAtruthChannel” on YouTube. His election night videos bring a smile to my face every time.
