State Department spokeswoman can't name Hillary Clinton's diplomatic achievements ... and neither can Hillary Clinton!
Jen Psaki, the State Department's chief spokesperson, seemed blindsided by a question about Clinton's accomplishments
A CNN panel erupted into laughter when Psaki's gaffe was shown
Clinton herself couldn't articulate what she was 'most proud of' during her time as America's top diplomat when asked just weeks ago A former White House counsel from the Bill Clinton presidency defended Hillary on radio as 'the most popular woman in the world' She's likely to run for president in 2016 but faces an 'achievement gap' from her time in President Barack Obama's cabinet
Hillary Clinton's legacy as secretary of state is thin, judging from a press conference Tuesday in which the State Department's chief spokeswoman couldn't articulate any of the future presidential candidate's achievements on the job.
She's not alone, with experts of all political stripes finding it difficult to bolster Clinton's resume as America's top diplomat.
The former secretary of state herself had trouble articulating any lasting achievements from her tenure, during an April 3 appearance at the Women of the World Summit in New York City.
State Department Press Secretary Jen Psaki was flummoxed, too, when asked about a 2010 State Department Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR) that summarized then-Secretary Clinton's goals and accomplishments.
'Can you, off the top of your head, identify one tangible achievement that ... resulted from the last QDDR?' asked an Associated Press reporter during the daily briefing.

“Draft Squaw Lizzie Warren!”
Obama didn’t have any achievements prior to being elected president, so this doesn’t matter to Liberals.
Well, in all fairness, there was that funny “Reset” button, gag gift thingy that she gave to the Russkis. LOL!
“What difference, at this pint, does it make”
Well, she did rack up more miles than any other Secretary of State, visiting places that most folks never heard of. That was Barack’s greatest accomplishments as well, keeping the Hildebeast out of Washington during much of her tenure as the Reset Lady.
For low information voters, “what difference does it make?”
That 'reset' button (actually 'overcharge' but whatever) was more like Hillary's snooze button.
I think she has been drunk in more Capitals around the world than any other SOS.
"I intended to do good."
Does killing and getting away with it count?
When the boss doesn’t care one bit about foreign policy, it’s going to be hard for the Secretary of State to have anything to do, never mind be successful in. I’m sure the LSM will gin up something.
Much easier to name Hillary Clinton’s diplomatic anti-achievements. There are many.
I have long wondered why such political and intellectual lightweights like Psaki have key positions in the State Department. Also note that the State Department of late seems to have few males in important positions.
Granny Hillary is so swamped with thinking about her new to be grandbabt, that she cannot think straight, again.
