Hillary's New Ad May Not Be Complete Political Embarrassment
Now this is a peculiar strategy for the Clinton campaign. They seem to be eschewing their central Obama attacks -- his kindergarten record, horrific plagiarism, being a Negro -- for a criticism of his foreign policy judgment, and they're using "solid evidence" from his Senate career to support it. Isn't that mean and unfair of Hillary Clinton? Check out this new "issues-based" ad after the jump.
Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson was able to corner Obama spokesman David Axelrod yesterday on ABC's This Week using this Afghanistan thingy. But what does Afghanistan have to do with Hope, ultimately? Team Clinton should stick to the "totin' hay" school of politics. Legitimately criticizing her opponent's record would be an unwelcome return to those wretched Rovian politics.
