Campaign Video of the Day -- October 30, 2007

Hillary hasn't forgotten that this is still the primary season.

The last couple of days Barack Obama has been using Social Security as an exemplar of Hillary's trademark refusal to ever take a substantive position. Today Hillary strikes back with a video she calls There For You.

The ad is a classic example of what I call a "big brother" ad. George Orwell would have recognized it in an instant. Polished to a high focus group shine, it evokes powerful emotional themes without ever really saying anything. The ad doesn't even mention policy choices. Obama has to be pulling out his hair because while Hillary's ad is a perfect example of what he is complaining about, it is so well done most people wont notice it is meaningless pap.

If you have a video in need of a look please email a link to proctoring.congress@gmail.com subject Campaign Video of the Day.
