There wasn't any real substance. She said people don't trust her and that she has to work on it, but only alluded to having everything in the book thrown at her, rather that citing examples. She said she's made mistakes but didn't cite examples, only said nobody's perfect. That doesn't show she's learned from her mistakes. She also said the reason she's careful with her words is because she's careful with her words. Logically, that makes "is careful with her words" both the cause and effect and is unlikely to instill confidence in people.

Many people will see this as thoroughly empty.

A good response! mcar Jun 2016 #1
