Ball: Hillary’s Relaunch Speech Was ‘Really Flat’

BY:

The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball called Hillary Clinton's relaunch campaign speech in New York "really flat" on CNN Sunday, adding that the big crowd Clinton's camp hoped for was actually a much more modest one.

"It was not as big a crowd as it looked on TV," she said. "The campaign said it was about 5,000 people. It was surprisingly modest. I thought they might use this opportunity to sort of prove they could draw a big crowd, but they didn't. There was an overflow area with no one in it."

Ball went on to criticize the "really flat" speech itself.

"It was just sort of a list of proposals," Ball said. "Again, there was an opportunity here for her to really go for the big moment, the soaring rhetoric, the big idea … There's a lot of substance here, a lot to excite the Democratic base, and there's also some very careful wordsmithing here."
