63. She spoke from the heart - that is good enough for most

Down-on-luck Eden woman on big podium

Speaking before an audience of thousands at the Democratic National Convention in Denver may qualify Gloria Jean Craven as a star to many, but she refuses to accept the treatment that goes along with it.

Craven was offered help with her speech, but she refused. The 56-year-old displaced Pillowtex worker prefers to speak directly from her heart, not a sheet of paper.

"I will say it like I said it in Raleigh or I won't say it at all," said Craven, speaking about the speech she gave during Barack Obama's visit to Raleigh last week.

Craven believes she must have impressed Obama's camp during that appearance. They called on her again Saturday, asking if she wanted to take her message national.
