A Painful Listen to a Smug, Arrogant Politician

As a political independent, I found this speech utterly painful to listen to. It seems more targeted to whetting the bloodlusting appetites of the hardcore republicans than doing any kind of healing of the divide George Bush has created after 8 years. It certainly did not reach out to me as an independent with anything I could feel good about endorsing. This speech is really my first and only introduction to the woman, and it makes a horrible impression. Moreover, from the research I've done, even the alleged positive elements in the speech (such as the notion that the Bridge to Nowhere is something she rejected) seem bare half-truths, since apparently she decided not to build the bridge but still kept the federal money. A properly informed voter should probably listen to this speech, but anyone who is not a hardcore Republican with a strong sense of spite for all Democrats should expect to be embarrassed or put off by what they hear. I've rated this 2 stars because I hope never to hear speeches with this smug and surly tone from anyone in either party ever. It is just not a model to emulate.

Well spoken

This speech is not one of those speeches that poeple will be talking about in ten years, but it's what my circle of frends and colleagues are talking about this election season.

Don't rely on the sound bites you may have heard on the media. I've already heard some of her words taken out of context.
