Clinton had one of her aides download the emails of her top campaign staff so she could assess what went wrong during the 2008 campaign, The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Sidewire’s Jonathan Allen report in “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.” 

By reviewing the emails, Clinton wanted “to see who was talking to who, who was leaking to who,” a source
told the authors.

Two staffers from the 2008 campaign, Guy Cecil and Mark Penn, were not brought into the fold for the 2016 campaign. According to the book, Cecil corresponded with media members using his campaign email.

“I was struck by how good of a sense she had before I walked in there of the problems that were going on,” a Clinton aide told the authors. 

“She had a mosaic pieced together that if you read a transcript of it, you would have thought it was someone who had sat at headquarters every day, and it was remarkably accurate. She just had it pegged.”

Following the loss to President Obama, Clinton conducted an autopsy in the summer of 2008 to analyze “deficiencies” in her campaign.
