Hillary's Maryland Ads

New York Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign announced today that it will be showing two television ads in some Maryland markets before Tuesday's Potomac Primary. No word yet on which markets. They are called "Free Fall" and "Can Do."

I like Free Fall. Romney should have run it before Feb. 5.

Hillary is losing, slowly but surely. These next seven votes could ALL go for Obama. Politics is about money and momentum; Hillary has neither. She cannot yet see the train coming, but she can hear it. She will go very negative, and soon.

I tend to agree with you Steve. Billary's only way to compete is to fight. Wish they would just step aside and go out peacefully.

Senator Obama raises more money and attracts the glitterati, but money and the fashionable do not win campaigns. The Obama fans have been predicting the Clinton campaign's demise since before the Iowa caucuses, but are doomed to be disappointed, because she is the candidate of the struggling middle classes and working classes. They will turn out to vote, and they will send her to the White House. Senator Obama is a fine candidate, and I will personally support him if he wins the nomination. But I would prefer that he become a little more seasoned with respect to foreign policy and domestic economic policy before he steps into the presidential position. So I'm supporting Hillary Clinton, and I will support her even more fervently when I see these unpleasant attacks posted on these blogs.

It's strange that Obama, the candidate for "change", is so adept at raising money while his supporters say he takes no lobbying money.

Then there's the war rhetoric. I didn't vote for the war either. But, like Obama, I wasn't in the Senate when the votes were cast-so it's real easy to say that. What he did do is disrespect our allies by criticizing their involvement in the effort and now he says he's got diplomacy skills? Obama is a fraud and deserves no credit. For once, Bill Clinton was right, Obama is in fact a fairytale.

It's going to be fun watching Hillary and Obama tear each other down for the next few weeks. Meanwhile, the GOP will be standing accross the street watching the house burn to the ground. Cheers!

If you look carefully at the person doing the "free fall" in Hillary Clinton's recently-released ad by the same name you will notice that it appears to actually be two different persons (check the hair color and clothes) spiralling towards earth.

This would seem to be emblematic of Hillary's credibility problem, which is in fact in a free fall.

And now we hear that she will not release her tax returns until after she is the Democratic nominee--if that actually happens.

Why does she want to withhold such information from her fellow Demcorats?

It sounds pretty risky for the Democratic Party to nominate someone who will not level with it.

This is another Debbie-Downer add. While this may work with some people who are depressed, most people like the uplifting Obama message. Not only that, but the message has a disconnect. We see somebody skydiving. This is a sport that usually only wealthier individuals and people who spend a disproportional share of their income on extreme adventure take part in.If this guy is so bad off financially, why is he skydiving?

I like both of Hillary's ads. They deal with the most important issues for today. Our economy and our can do spirit. We are Americans and we can get our nation going in the right direction

People need to see action. Obama just talks about hope, that is great, but hope means nothing to someone who'se house is being foreclosed, hope means nothing for someone with tons of medical bills, hope means nothing for a returning veteran who can't get health services at the VA - YES, that is the state that the country is in.

What exactly is "hope," what exactly is "change" when there is no action associated with it? Hope and Change does not happen by a miracle, the happen by taking action - I have failed to see how Obama hopes to bring upon his "change" and his "hope" when he does not talk about the actions he will take.

His campaign message is memorized - a good talker, but limited on the action.

Last time we had someone running for President with a similar message and with limited experience, we got stuck with Dubya for 8 years.

Obama can talk all about hope, but I want to hear him talk about his specific actions on the economy, on health care, on Iraq, on Iran, on China, on North Korea - he doesnt do that beyond the usual message we get day in and day out.

I'm happy she is advertising in Maryland. I think that pass the frenzy time and excitement some voters are going to think who really is best suited to be the next President in these difficult times, who will the Commander in Chief, reform Health Care, fix the economy, etc. Who has the record and have delivered?
I'm very happy what a positive campaign Hillary is running because all I see that Obama's "movement" is creating is excitement, negative energy, insults, attacks and no substance whatsoever.
I think this kind of excitment cannot hold and will not stand through a General Election Process, specially when the alternative is Senator McCain who does a very strong record. We Democrats need to support who is the best candidate for the General Election.

Will America Reject Experience and "Gamble" on Change?

If we accept Change, and Barack Hussein Obama fails, it would be a total disaster. A DECADE of FAILURES!

BTW: Our President will have to get us out of the recession, too.
