Thanks to Andrew Sullivan for the link to a Barack Obama Superbowl commercial:
Didn’t see it here, of course, since I’m in Canada. But it’s a solid ad, and would play well to people who are tired of watching attack ads. I know that too often, political campaigning on the television is built around “They don’t do this” and “They don’t do that”. In this Barack again sets the bar that much higher, by making his message of hope clear to those watching the game, too.
If nothing else good comes out of Obama’s campaign, I hope it stops the attacks ads. I’d much rather a politician tell me what they plan on doing, rather than what the other person hasn’t done or cannot do!
