    She gets a pass in my book, as long as she didn't win.

    She wasn't so much a victim of ignorance as she was a victim of her own poor planning for a game as old as time.

    As a gamble, she probably game-planned that her jumpoff point for answering ANY question was, "IT ALL STARTS WITH EDUCATION," since appeals for creating education, um, better, is an easy point scorer with the judges.

    She dived into her canned response before she realized the question about income inequality for women didn't easily fit. And when she realized CTRL+ALT+DEL on live TV was killing time, she tried to wrap it up and hightail it out of there. "Men are the Leaders" was her weak attempt to get direct about the question, but then she didn't want to look like she was blaming men, so... back to education, as the vine to pull her out of the moat.

    I love what this NPR commentator, Linda Holmes, had to say about it.

    NPRShe's not in the news for being dumb; she's in the news for being bad at spontaneous but convincing balderdash manufacturing, and because it's fun to watch a carefully orchestrated spectacle crash on the rocks. She's not a dumb person; she's bad at public speaking. And if she were good at it, nobody would have ever heard of her.
