"Never get into a word war with a diplomat"

Conan O'Brien did not know what he was getting himself into when he cracked a joke about former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on Thursday.

Albright responded within 30 minutes of the comedian's tweet with a witty retort.

Plus one Madam Secretary! The conversation didn't stop there. Then the late-night host expressed his excitement at Albright's response, and she kept on zinging.

At least he knows when he's been defeated.

It's OK though, Conan. Madeleine Albright still hearts you.

She's just awesome like that.
