I didn't see much difference at all. In the first one, she's READING, which could be much more difficult than just speaking, which she was doing last year. I think you're seeing things.

This is part of my point. Why couldn't she just say what she felt. Instead she read a prepared statement on the issue. It may very well be harder to read for her then to speak, but if she felt strongly about this issue then she should have just said so.

She could have done a lot of things differently. She could have worn a different dress... But she didn't. And I think to suspect her of faking or playing up her illness is akin to Limbaugh accusing Michael J. Fox of faking his Parkinson's tremors for sympathy... Not a fan.
I feel the same, but if she knows that she has a hard time reading, then why have a prepared speach? Why not talking points to keep herself on topic?
I can't imagine not having prepared remarks for speaking in this formal setting..
