NY Times Reporter Says Even Hillary's Fans Are 'Flailing' In Attempt to Tout Her Achievements at State Dept.

Via The Right Scoop, we noticed that young New York Times reporter Nicholas Confessore – a veteran of the liberal opinion journal The Washington Monthly – thinks Hillary Clinton has a resume problem on her way to the White House, and it’s not Benghazi, exactly.

On MSNBC’s Jansing & Co. Friday, he said “I actually think that the real thing they have to overcome, the question everyone’s asking is ‘What was her biggest accomplishment as Secretary of State?’And you know, I just see flailing on this question, from her own supporters, I don’t see any good answer, or at least a solid, strong answer. It’s sort of surprising to me.” (Video below)

MSNBC host Chris Jansing noted that Team Clinton would say ‘she traveled a million miles, and didn’t she improve the standing of the U.S. abroad?” Confessore said “It’s not the kind of thing you put out there, ‘this is the concrete thing that I did.’”

Even State Department flacks have flailed at at answer.
