    I'm more of a substance person, but I am also very worried about Tammy's skills. If nothing else, she needs to learn how to talk to her audience rather than "speech" at them. She came off like a 4-H kid giving a speech on something that bored her, off of 3x5 cards. :-(

      thought she did sound stiff and the beginning, but then warmed up.  I think it also might be that following Bernie Sanders is not easy to do. But, I will vote for her no matter what, so it is good if you are doing some constructive criticism. I thought she got the idea that she will fight for us across.

      sometimes I've thought she sounded almost painfully sincere and even naive.  Hopefully IF she gets tutoring in "speech-making" she'll discover a way to be more natural.  (I know there are speech/media tutors because the entire executive group where I worked went through that kind of training.  I believe it took a few of them down a peg or two and that was needed.  LOL.)  Cliff Shecter, a strong Progressive and friend of Thom Hartmann, can do that kind of training.
