Former Secretary of State Colin Powell had it, as was made clear in his June 19, 2009, email asking, after her mid-June 2009 elbow fracture: "Hillary, Is it true [Richard] Holbrooke tripped you? Just kidding, get better fast, we need you running around."
Lanny Davis, a prominent lawyer and longtime adviser to both Clintons, also had it. And so did Brian Greenspun, the publisher, CEO, and editor of the Las Vegas Sun—and major donor to Clinton's 2008 presidential bid—who emailed Clinton at one point to let her know that "word has it the Israeli ambassador has been trying to meet with you to no avail." Clinton also received emails on the account from Neera Tanden, a top adviser to her 2008 campaign, and John Podesta, now her campaign chairman. ("Tried you a couple days ago, but email bounced back. Neera says this is the right one," Podesta wrote.)
Powell wasn't the only person to email about her injury. There's a June 23, 2009, message from Axelrod to Clinton urging her to rest and recover, adding: "You are an all-star player, and we need you for the long run!" Clinton thanked him a couple days later with a message that says, it's an "honor" to serve Obama with Axelrod and that she and Axelrod should spend some time together comparing notes and catching up soon.
When former President Jimmy Carter emailed Clinton in July 2009, he did so via one of her aides—Lauren Jiloty. The subject was "N. Korea" and apparently concerned his efforts to get two detained female American journalists back from the country.
And not everyone preferred to use email to contact Clinton. "[Al] Gore just called saying he hasn't heard from you. he's expecting to hear from you tonite. I'm sorry," read a May 18, 2009, message from senior aide Huma Abedin to Clinton.
Elsewhere, the messages show various correspondence with longtime confidant Sidney Blumenthal, who, as previous releases from State and the House Select Committee on Benghazi show, emailed with Clinton repeatedly about Libyan security and intelligence issues in 2011 and 2012.
The newly released tranche show 2009 messages between Blumenthal and Clinton on issues including U.K. politics, Iranian politics, and more, with Blumenthal offering advice on various topics.
In one November 2009 exchange, Blumenthal recalls bumping into Charlie Rose and they discussed an upcoming interview with Clinton. "He said he wanted to focus a lot on China. That he will be in Berlin will help focus him, too, on the transatlantic relationship, which I would also bring up if he doesn't." Blumenthal reached out to Clinton at all hours of the day: One email from June 2009, at just after 10 p.m., asked Clinton to call him. "Hillary: if you're up, give me a call," he wrote in the subject line.
The Clinton emails also reveal just how rapidly America's foreign policy allies have shifted through the Obama presidency. In an email dated December 13, 2009, Clinton gave approval for a condolence cable for Bashar al-Assad, who had just lost his brother.
