When asked to provide, “one decision she made as commander-in-chief of the Alaskan National Guard,” Bounds continually sidestepped the question.

Eventually, he turned the tables. “Certainly you don’t mean to belittle every experience, every judgment she makes,” he said. “I’m belittling nothing! I just want to know one judgment or one decision,” she responded.
