O'Malley Dillon works for Precision Strategies and in 2009 served as executive director of the Democratic National Committee under then-Chairman Sen. Tim Kaine. In 2008, she was Obama's battleground states director for his general election campaign.

Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have been concerned about campaign strategy and messaging, according to sources.

Clinton told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on the eve of the New Hampshire primary that it would be political malpractice for her team not to "take stock" and examine what has worked and what has not as the race moves toward more diverse states.
