    Thanks for the links. Michelle looks amazing, as always. I did get a chuckle when I noticed the title "Olympic Gold Medalist" under her name during the Houston TV interview. Of course, to me, she is an Olympic Gold Medalist.

    Go Michelle

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    She looks amazing. There were moments when she calmed down and did not try so hard to put emphasis on her words or use demonstrative gestures that she sounded very natural and engaging. She is definitely moving in the right direction.

    LOVE Michelle but she still has a lot to learn in the public speaking department! She should consider taking a few classes or work with a coach, I think it would help her a great deal.

    I know a few presidents who could have benefitted as well, but it didn't stop them.

    Michelle is engaging and charismatic. You can't teach that. And her public speaking has improved by leaps and bounds over the years, and I am sure will continue to.

    I can think of a few presidents as well, and just because they didn't get help doesn't mean they shouldn't have Michelle is amazing, but I think a speech pathologist or speech coach could help her to slow down, stop using elisions, and be more clear. It could only make her more charismatic and engaging.

    Most of you who criticize Michelle (whatever she does) couldn't do half so well.

    It's posts like these that make me sick. Michelle Kwan is my favorite skater ever, probably my favorite person ever, and all I did was suggest that she take a few lessons to impove her public speaking and the kwaniacs come out swinging. Michelle is as wonderful as a person can be, but that doesn't mean she is above reasonable criticism from time to time. When you show up to defend her when she clearly doesn't need to be defended, it makes you look obsessed in my opinion...

    triple buzz, personally i thought she did quite well, my mom enjoyed it very much.
    for me she has improved.

    also what about tara improving her speech, peggy, nancy, all who are in commentating improving their speech. for me personally they all could.
    they all do a decent job, but each could improve their speech and/or job.

    We will agree to disagree, then, Triple Butz.

    I think some people are obsessed with criticizing her every action,
    That, I find obsessive!
