No idea what to expect of Ford. I know nothing about her. Her friends and acquaintances have said she's soft spoken and very intelligent and deliberate. I believe she's in a car driving cross country from San Fran to DC, so hopefully she has a person prepping her. That said, I'd not feel a need to be prepped. I'd happily just get into the chair and answer honestly. I think she believes she's telling the absolute truth, so she ought to be able to speak with authority on certain issues, such as knowing for certain Kav is the perpetrator. Otherwise, she'll be fuzzy on details, as anyone would be.
Like you, I remember certain aspects of those years with absolute clarity, such as things I was wearing and conversations had at parties, but then I'm fuzzy about what season it was, or where the party was, or who I was with when we arrived. Nobody should be expected to recall every detail. That's not reasonable. That said, it's not unreasonable to remember who specifically tried raping you.
I'll say this much...I think the GOP is underestimating the power of a presumably-credible woman sitting there on nat'l TV and explaining that their nominee grabbed at her privates, covered her mouth, fondled at her, etc and then telling how that's affected her life. She'll surely be asked about the other guy and it'll be bantered about that he's in hiding. She'll surely discuss that she passed a polygraph administered by the FBI dude. I suspect she'll mention that she's been telling her husband about Kavanaugh being the perpetrator for many years, and that she specifically named him many years ago to him. Maybe they listen and vote and confirm him. That's very possible. I don't rule it out. If they do that, I believe WW3 begins the next day. You might see women marching in the streets at levels twice what we saw the day after the inauguration. I'm just spit-balling, and maybe she'll not be credible and people will just dismiss it. Overall, this has the feeling of creating a huge female turnout situation in November elections. I noticed that in today's polling, several Dems appeared to be pulling away in some of the very tight senate polls whereby they were previously tied or behind in races.
