How the top surrogate for Hillary Clinton would undermine her campaign

IN THE MIDDLE OF HIGHWAY 301 NEAR WASHINGTON, D.C., >> In 2016, this man was wavering. He was reluctant to vote for Hillary Clinton. He didn’t want to call himself a traitor to the Democrats. Now, after eight years of Barack Obama, he says he is more likely to vote for Mrs. Clinton than to cast a ballot for Donald Trump. “I would never say she is more qualified, but I would say she is more likely to continue the Obama presidency,” said the man, a project manager at an advertising agency who spoke on the condition of anonymity, after he stopped eating dinner as Mr. Biden campaigned nearby Friday. “I’m not sure that a Trump presidency is actually so bad for me. I know we can put Barack back in.”

It’s an uncomfortable proposition for Mrs. Clinton. After claiming victories in the Pennsylvania and Wisconsin primaries, she ceded those states to Mr. Trump in the general election. But since then, Mr. Biden has become her top adviser as she considers launching a second campaign. She has also settled on operatives who worked closely with him in 2016.
