Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has to be more real in her campaign if she expects to reverse her downward slide, former Obama adviser David Axelrod told The Hill on Tuesday.

Clinton "needs to untether herself from the teleprompters and talking points and genuinely interact in real terms with people," Axelrod said. "If she does, she'll do well. If she doesn't, it will be harder."

Axelrod tweeted a week ago that a New York Times story on Clinton's plans to be authentic read more like article in The Onion, a satirical news website.


He also has criticized Clinton for how she has handled her private email server controversy, allowing the story to drip out slowly. The issue won't go away quickly by itself, he told The Hill, because Republicans don't want it to go away.

Axelrod said, though, that he still believes the former secretary of state to be a viable candidate.

"I think you should take every opponent seriously, but I think she has assets that are undervalued in this when you look past the first two contests," Axelrod said.
