It was Hillary Clinton’s campaign to lose.

Between the unrelenting “email-gate” probe and Bernie Sanders’s surprising rise, signs are surfacing that the Clinton campaign is heading into crisis territory.

Behind the Clinton campaign are some of the best political minds in the country, many of whom helped Barack Obama navigate his presidential campaigns and presidency. But what the high-caliber team has failed thus far to do is forward a new Clinton narrative that would appeal to voters.

Clinton herself has not been instrumental on that front, appearing stunted and aloof in many of her public appearances. What can the campaign do to revive itself?
