This is one of the most personal, hard-hitting and emotional political ads that you will see this election cycle. The fact that the DSCC put this special ad out against the egregious Norm Coleman, is a plus all unto itself. But it's the subject matter that will grab your heart.

Nancy and Claremont Anderson, the parents of a Minnesota soldier who was killed in Iraq

Now that you have seen the ad..wouldn't you like to see the same type of advertising against McCain? Isn't McCain just as guilty as Coleman for his bad judgement in both his early support of the war and his continued support of the Iraq war, not to mention the fact that McCain seems eager to start more unprovoked wars?

Perhaps if we all send an email to the DSCC requesting more ads like this featuring McCain/Palin, they will get them up around the country. This is the type of ad that all Americans can identify with, because we are all afraid of losing our children, brothers, sisters, Moms and Dads.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
