She Made A Point

Without being mean or self-indulgent she essentially said she has a life, a full life and she is grateful for where she is. The contrast with Obama was plain for those who wanted to see it. He could not for the life of him describe a moment of crisis which he had managed, nor express a sense of gratitude for what he has been given (yes, given – a wonderful, safe and vibrant country). She certainly came off sympathetically, but the contrast came too late in the game.
