Clinton?s New 3 A.M. Ad

Hillary Clinton’s latest ad reprises her 3 a.m. theme, only this time she’s taking calls on the economy. The most interesting thing about this commercial is its target: not Barack Obama, who has just surpassed Clinton in one poll in Pennsylvania, but John McCain. Update: McCain responds.

April Surprise?

Dems Clash With Time to Spare

The Pennsylvania primary isn’t until April 22, and the campaign has already gotten nasty. There have been so many dust-ups between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in the last couple of days, it’s almost hard to keep track. With weeks to go, there’s no sign of a cease-fire.
