After a group of Hillary Clinton supporters failed to name one of the Democratic presidential candidate's accomplishments as secretary of state, a journalist stepped up to say the question itself was unfair.
Susan Milligan of U.S. News & World Report told a panel on MSNBC's "Hardball" Wednesday that because a secretary of state's job is making sure the world doesn't fall apart, most people wouldn't be able to name that official's accomplishments.
"I think most people could not look at a secretary of state and point to an accomplishment," Milligan said. "Frankly, mostly what a secretary of state does is keep something from ... becoming a massive crisis. So that, in a way, wasn't ... a terribly fair question."
Host Chris Matthews noted, "Obama didn't have a big accomplishment before he got elected."
