What did she do wrong? Why did it follow almost throughout the campaign?

She didn't just apologize right away, kept using the whole "what is is".

Also, it didn't really matter after July 2016 [the focus moved over to "muh Clinton Foundation"]...only when Comey-insert some affix besides gate or ghazi here- happened at October did things resurface on that matter.

What could she have done? Tell Anthony Wiener to hand his computer over to James Comey in late 2015?

What did she do wrong? Set up a private server in the first place and then repeatedly lie about it.

It was her handling of the situation if anything else. It showed her as a sleazy politician.

In reality....nobody cared about her emails and it had no effect on the race.

People didnt like Hillary and looked for arbitrary reasons for why they didnt like her. The email scandal just happened to be the one thing taking up the most newstime so the voters went with that as reasoning for why they disliked her.

Yes. She also should have fired Huma and given a speech where she sincerely apologized for the email fiasco.

This.

Why did she need to have a private server?  That is totally beyond me.
