Hillary Clinton's comments about the double standard women face in the media got the most news coverage from the panel she was a part of at last week's Women in the World Summit.

But the most revealing response she gave New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, the panel's moderator, was when she struggled to identify her greatest accomplishments as secretary of state.

"It's really astonishing, because she has to know that's the most important question she's going to get and she has said before, 'oh well I traveled more than any other secretary of state. Well, what did you accomplish?' asked Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute. "And even she doesn't have a good answer to that."

Story continues below video.



The reason she can't answer the question is because there's no good answer to give, said conservative radio host Kevin Jackson.

"Hillary Clinton has accomplished nothing," Jackson said. "She had accomplished nothing when she was a carpet-bagging senator and this job was just strictly a stepping stone for what she hopes was going to make her the first female president of the United States, but at the end of the day, Hillary Clinton has no record."

Clinton recovered and told Friedman she was proud of the stabilization and global leadership the U.S. provided – a notion that Turner scoffed at.

"She's delusional," Turner said. "There's no one who could say the world is a more stable place."

Turner said Clinton's tenure as secretary of state – during which she oversaw U.S. foreign policy during the troubled Arab Spring, including the fatal raid on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya – will come back to haunt her.

"[I]f she has a legacy, I think Benghazi is really representative of that," Turner said.
