No, she didn’t come away victorious in her prosecution of O.J back in the day, and the jurors were said to find her abrasive and off putting. I, on the other hand, find her riveting.
Take the way she keeps changing her look.
During the O.J. trial, she was Curly Marcia.
Then she went blonde.
Then she adopted the sleeker look she’s sporting now.
The woman has reinvented herself more often than Madonna, but what I love most about her is her articulateness, if that’s even a word.
As a frequent legal contributor to CNN, she’s been a regular on AC 360, along with defense attorney Mark Geragos, talking about the Sandusky trial, and I’m always mesmerized by how fast and furiously she speaks. She never says “um” or “you know” or “like” but rather presents her views in complete sentences, with great passion and conviction, even when backed into a corner. That’s a gift, if you ask me.
