Gibson, too, tested by exclusive Palin interviews

The most awkward moment of Sarah Palin's interview with Charlie Gibson came when Gibson asked her if she supported the "Bush doctrine." Palin paused, then asked Gibson which aspect of the Bush doctrine he meant. It became clear that Palin didn't know that "Bush doctrine" is shorthand for the idea that the U.S. can attack another country on suspicion that that country might attack the United States. It is perhaps the most debated aspect of Bush foreign policy.
