Of all the unsolicited advice Megyn Kelly should have received, the first should have been STAY IN THE ARENA. Don't take a two week vacation. Yes, you are a big deal on a big stage. Don't show any weakness. Who cares if someone doesn't like your questions. You have a right to seek the answers. The practice of law is no different. Stand and deliver. Don't go to the corner in the middle of a round, especially if you can still see the opponent. Remember, as a trial lawyer, you are the Gladiator, seize the moment and win for your client!!!
