A champion of healthcare reform, whose endorsement played a role in the 2008 election of President Barack Obama, Kennedy described his frustrations at how Clinton's efforts at revamping the system failed, which he attributed to an early focus on exacting details. "It's basically a miscalculation on their part, an obsession with the details," Kennedy said in March 2008.

Criticism about Clinton's decision to set up an email account connected to a server in her New York home for her work as the nation's top diplomat have dogged her for more than six months, sometimes overshadowing her campaign to become the Democratic nominee for the November 2016 presidential election.
