Emails published by WikiLeaks show that top Hillary Clinton advisers — campaign chairman John Podesta and Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden — worried about the energy levels generated by Hillary’s campaign.

On May 28, 2015, Tanden wrote to Podesta that the “excitement thing you were worried about does seem to be a problem.”

“She does need to rev it up,” Tanden suggested.

“Is that in response to something specific?” Podesta asked. “Or just general observation.”

Tanden noted that the stories coming out of South Carolina’s February primary included “empty seats at event and closed office. [sic]”

“Closed but for Glenn Thrush,” Podesta humorously responded.

“Lol,” Tanden wrote back before stating that “reporters definitely buzzing. But nothing that an event or two cant fix. [sic]”
