I agree. The longer she talks the waver seems to smooth out. My first impression of Condi was that she was nervous but she is obviously in control and so intellectually superior to those RAT hacks whose agenda was glaringly apparent. I was not in favor of her testifying in public because I felt it would not resolve anything and the RATS would say they needed just one more thing to convince them. And then another, and another. Such has proved to be the case since they now want a memo that will settle nothing but give them more media time to propagrandize. Oh well, Condi Rice can handle that too.

It's just a vocal cord thing. My great-aunt had the same waver in her voice all her life.
. . . but if you thought you could roll her because she sounded like a sweet little dithering old lady, you were quickly disabused of that notion.
I think strong-minded folks with this sort of voice have learned to use it to their advantage. Bent-veniste thought he had her, and then BAM!

Yesterday, on Rush, he played a sound byte from one of the 9/11 widows attending the committee hearings, I think it was one that was interviewed by Katie Couric yesterday. She says "think of all the other PDBs that THIS President may have recieved, what do they all say?" SO, you are correct, they get the August 6th briefing and now they want them all. It will be never-ending because they are looking for something that is not there.
