Video: Clinton Struggles to Name Medvedev

A news report from Russia Today focuses on a debate last night between US Democratic Presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, which strayed into the territory of the upcoming Russian presidential elections. The Russia Today reporter said that Clinton was “seemingly savvy on the Medvedev question,” but focused on the fact that she struggled to get his name right. When asked to name the First Deputy Prime Minister, Clinton responded, “Meh, uhm, Me-ned-vadah — whatever.” The New York Times and LA Times have also picked up on the story.
