Here's How Hillary Clinton's Concession Speech Came Together

In the new book by The Hill's Amie Parnes and Sidewire's Jonathan Allen, "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign", released today details what should have been a winnable election for the career politician that turned into an abject nightmare over largely avoidable mistakes. Steve Schale, among the most reliable Democratic strategists in the state, informed Clinton's campaign they were short on votes.

In the summer of 2008, Clinton was "conducting an autopsy of her failed bid against Barack Obama, and she wanted an honest accounting of what had gone wrong", Allen and Parnes wrote in the book.

"If she thinks she's going to force me out of a race like this, she had another thing coming to her", Biden said in response to her tactics. One of the many examples is the fraught relationship between the campaign chairman John Podesta and Robby Mook, which we unearth in the book. And then the first woman who was going to be president got her opponent on the line and said two words she never expected to say: "Congratulations, Donald".

Former President Bill Clinton reportedly told his wife, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, that she should not apologize for using a private server to discuss classified and highly sensitive matters while serving as secretary of state.

Clinton's actions, according to Parnes and Allen, reminded Obama of some of the "qualities" that helped him win the Democratic primary in 2008.

He said they wanted her to stand up "for people that she thought would be treated poorly under a Trump administration".

During a debate prep session, Clinton reportedly snapped at senior policy adviser Jake Sullivan, who was criticizing her performance.

"Mook had made the near-fatal mistakes of underestimating Sanders and investing nearly nothing early in the back end of the primary calendar", Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes write in their chronicle of the Clinton campaign, Shattered. Now she's taking flak for getting too deep in the weeds in the speech she gave at her campaign's first big rally in NY.

After the election, some analyses have argued that while Hillary was beset by challenges that no candidate before her had to face, she also made key missteps over the course of her campaign that cost her the election. I've spent the intervening months trying to understand what Clinton's defeat said about the electorate, about Clinton and about the campaign she ran.

They saw and heard far more than most of us, exploring deep inside "Clintonworld" in search of the real story.

When Hillary Clinton first ran for president in 2008, there was a moment in SC when Bill Clinton compared then-Sen.
