Clinton hit Richardson with a one-liner Saturday night at the Iowa Brown and Black Forum
DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – The Iowa Brown and Black Presidential Forum is a debate where each Democratic candidate has an opportunity to pose a question to one of their opponents on stage.
For his question, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson turned to Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York.
After first comparing himself to former Arkansas governor and former president Bill Clinton saying they were both CEOs and have both balanced budgets, Richardson asked Clinton, "Don't you think that governors make good presidents?"
Richardson may not have anticipated the response she gave after the laughter and applause subsided.
"Well, Bill," Clinton said, "I think they also make good vice presidents."
Once a much louder applause settled, a moderator asked Richardson if he was sorry he asked.
Richardson insisted he wasn't.
For what it's worth, Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich posed his question to himself.
