Hillary Clinton is being accused of not connecting the dots in her failed election campaign.

In a new book called 'What Happened' she does accept some blame...but concludes her defeat was mostly the fault of others.

Jonathan Allen co-wrote the book 'Shattered', which went behind the scenes of the Clinton campaign.

He told Larry Williams Mrs Clinton had tremendous difficulty explaining to voters what she could do for them.

"I think a lot of voters practically those who were persuadable thought that her campaign was largely about herself and to some extent disqualifying Donald Trump."

Jonathan Allen said in contrast, Donald Trump painted in big, bold strokes what he wanted to do.
