Andrea Mitchell: I Plead Guilty To Being One of The 'Elite, Smart People'

Gee, and you thought Barack Obama had an inflated opinion of himself.  After watching Andrea Mitchell in action, he might actually need self-esteem therapy  . . .

On her MSNBC show today, Mitchell rolled a clip in which Rick Santorum told the Value Voters Summit audience that "we will never have the elite, smart people on our side."  After asking a former Santorum aide what he he meant by the "elite smart people," Mitchell declared "I think I should plead guilty."  View the video after the jump.

Alice Stewart, the former Santorum aide, diplomatically responded "you are very smart, there's no doubt about that, Andrea."  Mitchell finally tried to temper her boast, replying "I don't know about that.  Just joking."

View the video and watch the elite, smart Andrea in action.
