Clinton's Hard Work Pays Off With Failure

“We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it?” Clinton said as reporters, allowed in to observe the first few minutes of the meeting, watched.

You got it wrong,” Lavrov said, to Clinton’s clear surprise. Instead of "reset," he said the word on the box meant “overcharge.”

I said failure, but more likely its yet another insult to a foreign country.

It's funny how the Reuter's article completely skipped the gaffe in their story though... Perhaps they didn't actually see the video of the event.
