This is one of McCain’s latest ads, Debra. Watch the video, and I’ll post my thoughts below it:
It’s a good ad. I would’ve liked it better if she’d have done that on her own, instead of going to the McCain campaign to do it, because it looks more forced that way, but it still shows the fact that a lot of Clinton supporters are 1) mad about Obama being the nominee and 2) willing to actually do something about it.
Also, Obama is more liberal than Clinton, and the fact that McCain is a moderate conservative means that Clinton supporters are going to be more willing to cross the party line than they normally would be.
I say, good for Debra Bartoshevich (the woman in the ad), who was a former delegate from Wisconsin. She was removed from the position of delegate when the Wisconsin Democratic Party found out that she violated (or intended to violate) a a pledge that she signed when she accepted the position (a pledge to uphold the local rules, which apparently wouldn’t allow her to vote for McCain at the convention as she intended), they voted not to seat her at the convention.
Hopefully she brings over some more former Clinton supporters!
And I’d better never hear Obama say that George Bush stole the election because he lost the popular vote, since Clinton beat Obama by 223,243 votes (including caucus goers).
Originally, I was saying they should’ve picked Edwards. Obviously that would’ve gone badly, so now I think they’d have been screwed no matter who they picked.
Clinton supporters are going to make this easy for McCain!
