    political ads, ever.  I can watch it over and over again.  It's simple, her voice is plain and honest, and it embodies the Alaska of my dreams, not the Palin of my nightmares.  There's respectful visual distance (in degree of close ups and framing shots) in the telling of something incredibly personal and painful, with a positive outcome because of the actions of one Democrat.

    And it's the music.  The music in that ad is spectacular.  It's so subtle, faint, but carries the theme of simplicity, wistfulness, hopefulness, and dignity.  

    That ad is the total package.  I don't know who produced that ad, but they should clone that person and send them out to each of the contested states.  We need more ads like that.  Not shouting, not blaming, not threatening with the Apocalypse, but a simple dignified ad that speaks a simple dignified truth.  

    "Out of Many, One Nation." This is the great promise of these United States of America -9.75 -6.87
