Ads ads ads

Maggie says:
I just caught the latest Obama ad... have you all seen this yet? I love smart use of music in ads. Not sure how this one will be received, but it definitely got my attention, and certainly hits on the right economic notes. Love that they got the hug in there, too. Thoughts?

As much as I agree with Hillary Clinton not being on Obama's ticket, I have no stomach for the HRC-themed McCain attack ads. There are two out today - one, which is rather sloppy, was put out by the McCain campaign. The other one scares the hell out of me; it was produced by the Republican National Committee. How much can the convention counter this line of attack?
