New Ads From Clinton, Dodd, McCain

Clinton: You Need to Work for Change
Hillary Clinton has earned praise for her statement at the Des Moines Register debate that "Everybody on this stage has an idea about how to get change. Some believe you get change by demanding it, some believe you get it by hoping for it. I believe you get it by working hard for change." She's restated the phrase in campaign speeches, and in her new ad.

"I've seen what change takes. It doesn't happen because you want it to, or because you hope for it. You have to work for it," Clinton says in the ad. "I have 35 years experience making change. For kids, for our troops, for families. This election isn't about choosing change over experience. Change only comes with experience. And with a war to end, and an economy to fix, we've never needed change more, or the strength and experience to make it happen."

Meanwhile, Chris Dodd is making a similar last-ditch direct-to-camera appeal to Iowans in his new ad called, "Together."

"Some people say that I have too much experience to run for President. But the more you hear my opponents, the more you wonder whether they have enough," Dodd says. "I've spent my life bringing Democrats and Republicans together to create real change. I know I can win the general election ... and I am ready to be President."

Finally, John McCain has a new ad reminding New Hampshire voters about his consistent support of the Iraq war.

"One man warned us we were failing in Iraq, and told us how we could turn things around. More troops, and a different strategy. He took a lot of heat, but he stood by what he knew was right. Today, that strategy is working," the announcer says.

"One man does what's best for America, not what's easy."
