A New Kucinich TV Ad

The campaign of Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich has launched a new TV ad, and it's debuting YouTube-style.

The ad uses the image of a gas price meter ticking away -- showing the price of oil, the number of U.S. soldiers killed and wounded in Iraq, the number of Iraqi civilians killed or displaced, and oil company profits, among other figures. The sound of a gas pumping into a car permeates throughout.

The sound and imagery make it a powerful ad, and showcase what Kucinich considers the important facts and figures at stake.

What do you think? Could these types of ads help Kucinich? Click on the "comments" link below to leave your answer.

BLUNT...but maybe what it takes to make Americans make the connection. The trouble with this war is that most Americans are unaware it's going on. No sacrifices have had to be made by the majority.

I think the ad is brilliant. As soon as people hear the name "Kucinich", they tune out. He refuses to simplify the world into sound bites, and therefore people ignore (or worse, laugh at) him. This ad, however gets a clear bold message across and shows what is important to Kucinich. I have not found any reason to give my vote to anyone else.
