It has been speculated that Branson might have suffered a transient ischemic attack, or TIA, that caused aphasia — altered speech patterns. A TIA is caused by a temporary blockage or disturbance of blood supply to an area of the brain and causes stroke-like symptoms. TIAs can be precursors or warning signs for full-blown strokes that may occur in the future.
Your right it looked like she tried to correct herself and realized she couldn't do it,it's a strange feeling,I had a grand mal seizure once and couldn't remember my name where I was or even what I was, It's a very odd feeling indeed.

wow! Extreme case of nervousness perhaps but after watching it a few times, I would tend to think that she had a discomfort...like she would be about to faint and just garbled everything out at a hundred miles an hour...to cut short. But I'm not a doctor so I could be wrong...
In any case, imagine the embarrassment? I feel bad for the poor woman.
