Some interesting points here but one incorrect statement. The majority of Clinton’s campaign team was hired based on talent not connections. This is well documented. They chose the Brooklyn location to remain outside the beltway insider game. Her team was hired using tech company recruitment methods. Largely young and their competency was prized over insider connections. Sure there are the regular political professionals, Obama had plenty of party insiders and they have useful skills. But the people doing the heavy lifting are mostly not of the traditional political class. Clinton also cherry picked the best talent from the sanders team.
