Journalists Notice Problem For Hillary Clinton In Her Shouting
After Monday’s Iowa caucus and her previous speeches, journalists noticed a weakness in Hillary Clinton’s loud delivery style.
HILLARY CLINTON: What a night! An unbelievable night. What a great campaign…For the democratic party and the United States of America…I know that we can finish the job of universal healthcare coverage for every single man, woman and child.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe sees deficiencies in her bluster.
BOB WOODWARD: I think a lot of it with Hillary Clinton has to do with style and delivery, oddly enough. She shouts. There’s something unrelaxed about the way she is communicating and I think that just jumps off.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Last night I was watching her and I said to myself, has nobody told her that the microphone works?
WOODWARD: There is something here, where Hillary Clinton suggests that she’s almost not comfortable with herself. And you know, self-acceptance is something that you communicate on television.
SCARBOROUGH: But you were right though. Hillary is always up here and again, it’s just not natural to her.
WOODWARD: She could make a case for herself if she would just kind of lower the temperature and say, “Look, this is what I’ve done, this is what I can do, this is what I believe in,” and kind of get off this screaming stuff.
Howard Dean was then shut down trying to claim people only criticize Hillary because she’s a woman.
HOWARD DEAN: If she were a male and she were making these kinds of speeches, would people be criticizing her for…
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: No, oh my God, that’s desperate.
DEAN: I’m sorry to say it, I didn’t want to but…
SCARBOROUGH: I promise you if there was a man who always talked like this on stage, I would make fun of that man a lot faster than I would have to a woman.
