The Other McCain Ad

PrezVid's Peter Hauck wrote about one of John McCain's new New Hampshire TV ads, but there's one more worth noting.

"One Man" is a much more dramatic 60-second spot that uses footage of McCain being interrogated when he was a Vietnam POW.

"One man sacrificed for his country. One man opposed a flawed strategy in Iraq. One man had the courage to call for change. ..." the announcer says in the ad. You get the idea.

These are McCain's first TV ads, and while the senator's campaign almost collapsed over the summer, advisers think they're in good financial shape as the third quarter draws to a close.

"We believe that we've got enough money to run a campaign that can be effective and can work," campaign manager Rick Davis said, according to The Trail. Third-quarter fundraising totals will be released in mid-October. You can check out each candidate's take by browsing washingtonpost.com's Campaign Finance Database.

That right there is a campaign. I think people really like it when a person can relate to a current issue. People probably think John McCain can really relate to our soldiers, and because he can, will be very active in removing our troops from Iraq which is probably the biggest issue in our country.
