Let’s forgive State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. I mean, it was a difficult question.
Nevertheless, her response earned her a good chuckle from CNN’s John King and his guests, as you can see.
But why should she feel bad about it? Hillary can’t come up with any either.
Asked at the Women in the World conference earlier this month what she was “most proud of” as Secretary of State, Clinton boasted of . . . nothing in particular.
After saying something about Secretaries of State being in some kind of relay race – seriously – she declared: “I’m very proud of the stabilization.” Uhhh . . . what? Apparently she spent four years creating the platform for dealing with difficult crises like Ukraine.
“I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense,” she continued. That was as specific she got.
But of course, one of the main raps against President Obama is that he has ENTIRELY FORFEITED U.S. leadership in the world. I mean, there’s a reason the phrase “leading from behind” stuck so stubbornly to this administration.
You can run for president and get elected even if you haven’t done anything, as Barack Obama has proven. Hillary’s problem is that she was in a position to do something. And she didn’t.
