When asked who Putin’s likely successor would be, she seemed stumped, at least on the pronunciation. She began to say, Medvedev, but with a lot of help from Tim Russert, she couldn’t pronounce it, and said, “whatever.” For a woman who has banked her entire candidacy on her ability to be president from DAY ONE, on her vast foreign policy experience, it was an embarassment. It may have been a gotcha question, but she got got.

UPDATE: Andy McCarthy had the exact opposite reaction.
