Oops! They did it again.

Hillary Clinton once again proves that her questionable hiring practices are a serious campaign issue:

Responding to the release of HRC’s new TX TV ad, which asserts in no subtle terms that only she has the experience to deal with a major world crisis, and, relatedly, to keep your children safe, Slate’s John Dickerson asked the obvious question:

“What foreign policy moment would you point to in Hillary‘s career where she’s been tested by crisis?” he said.

Silence on the call. You could’ve knit a sweater in the time it took the usually verbose team of Mark Penn, Howard Wolfson and Lee Feinstein, Clinton’s national security director, to find a cogent answer. And what they came up with was weak — that she’s been endorsed by many high ranking members of the uniformed military.

She’s ready on day one? Please. The Clinton campaign isn’t ready to go on day 405. Jennifer Skalka has the audio file at the above link.

Matthew Yglesias:

How could they go forward with that ad without having a good answer to the question on hand? It’s inept in the extreme.

Indeed. It’s why they’re losing, and it’s why they have little chance of making up lost ground to the Obama campaign.
