A Question Obama Should be Asked Tonight

Earlier today, President Obama was on his way to do more debate prep, walking past White House reporters. He engaged in the usual friendly banter with what is normally a reliable group of supporters:

REUTERS: How are you feeling about tonight?

OBAMA (smiling): I feel fabulous. Look at this beautiful day.

NBC: Are you aware Michelle voted for you yesterday?

OBAMA (turning to yell back): Thank goodness!

But then came a substantive question, to which Obama had no answer:

POLITICO: Is Hillary to blame for Benghazi?

OBAMA: (Silence. Kept walking.)

It is quite remarkable to watch:

It’s a tough question. What is the right answer? Yes? No? I suspect that one more item was added to Obama’s debate preparation.
