The vaunted data-driven machine that twice got President Barack Obama elected is revving up to help elect Hillary Clinton, as Democrats look to recreate the tactical advantage they used against Republicans in 2008 and 2012 .Now a copy of that list, which helped propel Obama to record-breaking fundraising, is controlled by the Democratic National Committee, which can send emails at will without going through Obama's campaign.Mitch Stewart, Obama's battleground states director in 2012, said there was some disagreement that year about whether Obama's tech-infused strategy would work for other Democrats, or whether the phenomenon was Obama-specific. He said the continuity between Obama's campaign and Clinton's was proving it can be sustained.Obama campaign veterans permeate Clinton's operation at just about every level. Elan Kriegel, who ran data analytics for Obama, is doing the same job for Clinton, and Obama pollster Joel Benenson is now her chief strategist.
