Campaign Ads a Clinton Family Affair
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has been reluctant to bring her daughter and mother into the limelight for most of the last year of campaigning. But now she is struggling in Iowa -- and failing to capture the all-important female vote -- so guess what?
Both Chelsea Clinton and Dorothy Rodham are starring in new ads.
The campaign said on Thursday that it would begin airing the 30-second Dorothy spot immediately. It features the elderly woman saying she would want to see Clinton elected "even if she weren't my daughter." (Bill Clinton uses similar terminology on the campaign trail, saying he would stump for her even if she weren't his wife.) Details of the Chelsea ad have not been announced yet, but campaign officials said it would be released soon.
