Um not really, no. Obama didn't repeat it several times, after clarifying that the interviewer was asking about the number of states, not the number of primaries.

It's a verbal gaffe that's not all that uncommon. Everyone makes them.

Iraq, Iran ... I speak very, very, um, fluent Spanish.

Also, this proves that Pawlenty,, like McCain (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6GBdyws5YU), is infinitely more libertarian than Obama.
