  •  I like this ad - exactly what she needs to be (2+ / 0-)

    running right now with the SuperPAC's and NRSC sitting out.  Positive bio ad with policy sprinkled in.  She needs to work on her favorables while largely unopposed on the air.  

    One qualm is how her mother is on medicare and that's why she protects it - sort of makes her stances more self-serving than for the greater good.  

    An OFA Campaign Web Ad is the new Reid "sternly worded letter".

    •  No, "self-serving" in that way is good (0+ / 0-)

      You help yourself by coming off as "self-serving" when it happens to be a popular position that coincidentally is self-serving for almost all the voters!

      A candidate needs to "identify in" with the voters, that's what McCaskill did there, and it works perfectly.

      Great ad, I love it.  And good point that it's particularly effective without any GOP pushback.
