Unfortunately, Hillary’s ad does nothing to illuminate her strengths or why she believes she’s better qualified than Sen. Obama to lead in a crisis, but instead serves merely to invoke fear.
It’s a strategy successfully employed by the Republicans in 2002 and 2004 that lost its effectiveness in 2006. As with every other aspect of her campaign, Senator Clinton is detached from today’s realities, clinging to the 1990s as an anchor rather than offering a path to the future.
"You are not your bank account. You are not the clothes you wear. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your bowel cancer. You are not your grande latte. You are not the car you drive. You are not your fucking khakis… I say, let me never be complete. I say, may I never be content. I say, deliver me from Swedish furniture. I say, deliver me from clever art. I say, deliver me from clear skin and perfect teeth… I say, evolve, and let the chips fall where they may." ~Chuck Palahniuk
