"For Amy Klobuchar, the second time may not be a charm. But it might be good enough.
The Minnesota senator was stumped last week when asked by Telemundo if she could name the president of Mexico. “No,” she said. Prompted with the same question, billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer said, “I forget.” Only Pete Buttigieg was able to name him.
Given a do-over Tuesday at a CNN town hall in Las Vegas, Klobuchar sought to redeem herself. She gave her greetings to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador — she incorrectly pronounced his first name as “Andre,” but the Las Vegas crowd nevertheless cheered and applauded her effort.
Buttigieg seized on Klobuchar’s gaffe Sunday, telling supporters in Nevada “that there is more to being prepared than how many years you spent in Washington.”
Klobuchar told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday that she had been in the Senate “all day” on the day she did the interview. She noted the chamber held six votes that day, including a resolution to limit President Donald Trump’s authority to attack Iran without congressional approval, and that her flight landed in Nevada “at midnight my time,” then she “had a fast interview and then did two forums after that,” not wrapping up her day until 2 a.m. or 3 a.m."
