You heard it right. In an illuminating NY Times article about dysfunction in the Clinton campaign operation, inner circle confidant Harold Ickes had this eye-opener to say:
A senior adviser, Harold Ickes, joined the campaign full-time in January as Mrs. Clinton’s aides began to realize that the contest was not going the way they had planned. Mr. Ickes cautioned about drawing firm conclusions about her from this period, when she faced the demands of being a candidate.
“It’s hard to draw conclusions about her management style,” he said, “because she is, in fact, not the manager of her campaign.”
I know he probably meant that Hillary is the candidate but not the campaign manager. But in context with the rest of the article which notes her unwillingness to weigh in on major aspects of both tactics and strategy, this says a lot.
