The insider went on to say, "The election was stolen from her... but to go out there publicly again and again and talk about it? And then blame the DNC? It's not helpful to Democrats."

Some have said it's time to move on and make way for other leaders.

Obama has been largely out of view since leaving office. Some advisers have said he is doing that to let the new generation forge their way.

Democratic strategists have also weighed in.

Jamal Simmons, who worked for Al Gore's campaign, told the Hill that when Gore lost the election, "...he went to Europe, gained weight, and grew a beard. He walked away. And there's something to that."
