Obama's New Ad:
Change is Possible,
Further evidence that Iowa is the real battleground in the Democratic race: Sen. Barack Obama is launching his most aggressive advertising campaign in the state, with a direct, stylish spot in which he speaks directly to the camera. "Every time I speak about my hope for America, the cynics in Washington roll their eyes," Obama starts out, as the camera shoots him from the waist up. (It is shot in what appears to be a stately, slightly Pottery Barn-ish living room, with foliage out the back patio). Obama moves closer to the camera, still talking straight to the audience, as his message grows more direct.
"You see, they don't believe we can actually change politics and bring an end to decades of division and deadlock. They don't believe we can limit the power of lobbyists who block our progress, or that we can trust the American people with the truth," he says.
"And that's why we face the same problems and hear the same promises every four years." The message -- a boiled-down version of Obama's extended campaign speech -- is being broadcast in his largest ad buy to date.
