comment When I should use “assure” vs. “ensure” vs. “insure”?
yea, every time I have to use 'assure' or 'ensure', I always second-guess my choice. Definitely favorite-ing this question.

so, in doing some more research on this (now that I know what it's called) it looks like it's more often used in speeches, where the question is posed at the beginning of a section, and attempts to keep the audiences attention until the question is answered, later in the section. It seems like she might not be getting all the use out of the technique, since she immediately answers the question.
