"I think it's legitimate fear and or anger that things aren't fast enough partially based on the fact that the problem is so huge and vast -- what we inherited in this country -- and people don't quite understand either the depth and the ramifications in spite of the president explaining it," Heinz said.

Heinz described Brown's campaign style as "very open and relaxed and outgoing" while Coakley, was a "very capable person [and] very good attorney general ... [but] didn't come off anything like she should have or could have."

'Doctor T's' Advice to Women
