I emailed Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna to ask if controversial pollster Mark Penn is again advising the Clintons, as a Democratic strategist told BuzzFeed Penn had said. The response:
Penn was a key architect of Bill Clinton’s 1996 victory and of Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senate win. He was ousted from her turbulent 2008 presidential campaign, and has many enemies among her former aides.
