Clinton to launch second Nevada ad

(CNN) - Sen. Hillary Clinton's campaign announced Friday it would launch a second ad in Nevada next week titled "Stand by Us." The 30-second spot highlights how Clinton 'stood up' on health care for children, the National Guard and reservists and on raising the minimum wage.

Then the ad takes a local turn: "Now Hillary's standing up to stop the nuclear waste dump at Yucca Mountain."

Yucca Mountain is a key issue for Nevadans who don't want nuclear waste in their backyard. Presidential candidates tend to flaunt their opposition to the repository for potential caucus-goers.

A similar Clinton Campaign ad with the same title began airing in South Carolina on Thursday. The differences? There is no mention of Yucca Mountain and Clinton is 'standing up' against privatizing Social Security instead – a position not mentioned in the Nevada ad.

Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama are the only candidates running ads in the Silver State. By next week, they will have aired two apiece.

    Some comments say if you wna to know what Hillary has done, go to her site. Yup. that's the first thing I do when I buy car with my hard earned money- go to the dealership and ask them how is this car? I will get an honest answer. Please.

    America. You have more power at your fingertips and eyeballs than any other generation of humans. POWER. REAL POWER. But you can only weild it once every 4 years. Use your head. I won't say who I lean toward in this race, but each CITIZEN needs to do some research. Yes, I mean read. "But Wayne that's hard work. I don't wanna." Okay then. Try really working for even LESS wages when this country goes to hell-in-a-handbasket because we have been bought out by foreign entities (some even questionable governments), low-wage workers who do not know what a worker's union is for, and corporate special interests who think YOU are being OVERPAID. Notice I didn't even touch on foreign affairs? We will leave that out for next class.

    Recreating the Spanish flu? Is this the new bird flu pandemic?
    Can influenza be used as a bio weapon? What has been done and what have Senator Clinton, Obama and Edwards done to put a stop to these Programs? Nothing! The experiments were conducted at a laboratory of the US Department of Agriculture in Athens, Georgia. There is no sound scientific reason to conduct these experiments. Some of the most recent experiments allegedly seeked to test the efficacy of existing antiviral drugs on the 1918 construct – but there is little need for antiviral drugs against the 1918 strain if the 1918 strain would not have been sequenced and recreated in the first place. It should be avoided to create the threats that are allegedly the motivation for the research. A vicious circle is created. "The technologies are in place with reverse genetics to generate any influenza virus we wish." From an arms control perspective it appears to be particularly sensitive if a military research institution embarks on a project that aims at constructing more dangerous pathogens – if Jeffery Taubenberger worked in a Chinese, Russian or Iranian laboratory, his work might well be seen as the "smoking gun" of a bio warfare program.

    Hillary did not win by very much in NH. She's flip flopped on Nevada Nuclear Waste, the Iraq War, she has a TINY record I might add (taking credit for Bills accomplishments), is for a LARGER government which is already in debt. In order to create a larger government she needs to raise taxes. WRONG! She talks about defeating the Republicans instead of working with Republicans to solve America's problems. This would create an even larger divide in America not shrink it. By the way, maybe you should take a look at how she plans to UNFAIRLY tax oil companies. Think about it... If you are making a decent percentage of profit in your grocery store...thats good. But the same revenue percentage that oil companies make she plans to tax them even more. There is no doubt that oil companies make large profits considering a small revenue percentage, but this is in contrast to huge amounts of money to build, process and deliver to Americans to keep America running. Tax Oil companies UNFAIRLY (please research before responding) and you go against Americans market based economy,! Who will be next? Who's the next one she'll try to squeeze for money? The average man who makes his profits for his family? Maybe she'll create a tax backet for inventors who revolutionize America for making too much money. I know it wont be the lobbyist. Look at lobbyist who support her and you'll find the same companies that hurt America, not protect it. Go ahead, vote for Hillary because she's a woman, or because she's white, or maybe because you made your mind up even before other canidates were thought of. Polls mean nothing, but to barely win NH and get trounced in Iowa...doesnt look promising.....

    Since when did scrutiny over funding our American troops overseas become an issue in this race. Democrats are for a withdrawl, but to not fund our troops who would sooner or later run out of money would be outrage among Americans. Im a DOD(Department of Defense) employee, not a contractor and we have the smallest amount of money to work with. Just think of the troops trying to stay alive in Iraq. Bringing them hope is essential, the approach to not funding them or criticizing someone who supported the troops not the Iraq(Not Hillary) is a turn off.

    P.S. Hillary is in trouble when Mccain or Edwards fall. Hey, while we're at it, who is Hillary Clinton? Someone who was established by Bill, not herself. Without Bill, she would of not been known...Sad but true.

    Open your White House Record Hillary and show America your real record!!!!!

    Also, hero's are natural, not build or Piggy Backed around.

    I am sorry DAVID but I strongly disagree, HILARY DID WIN HUGE in New Hampshire. Evidently you have not been following this as close as serious citizen like myself. For the past 3 days upto 10 minutes before the polls closed every single media wether it was on paper, tv, cable, radio and even majority of the public were crowning OBAMA in NH with a 10 or more % win ove HILARY. Hilary has been scruitinized, judged, attacked, belittled by so many that even her own campaign were not feeling so good before the polls closed. HILARY emerged significantly and victoriously, overcomming the 2 digits expectation ahead of her and beating OBAMA by 7000 plus votes. You`ll be a fool if you think that was not much. That only shows that there are still SMART AMERICANS that can not be easily persuade through great speeches and endorsements by a celebrity. AMERICANS ARE INTELLIGENT PEOPLE, and NEW HAMPSHIRE proved that last night. MAYBE OBAMA ON THE NEXT DEBATES LEFT SHOULD TRY TO TELL PEOPLE EXACTLY WHAT HE CAN DO AS PRESIDENT NOT ON JUST HOW A PRESIDENT SHOULD DELIVER HIS SPEECH. HILARY for the longest time in this campaign has been so focused attacking GEORGE W. BUSH who is the real problem and needs to be scruitinized.

    SO AMERICANS let keeep working on spreading the word about who is going to be more efficient and ready on day one......PLEASE Dont go by " SOMETHING YOU FEEL IN THE AIR" thats GAS!

    looking at all the comments makes me wonder. are all of you this concentrated when it comes to putting someone in congress. after all they enact the laws. this year i will not only take a look (undecided at this point) for president but also for my member of congress. i realize not ever state has a member running for congress at this time but those that do please get involved at your state level also. i have a lot of problems with bush, but i am mad as hell and not going to take anymore from these so called statesmen.

    Jameson, you're a legend in your own mind. I would destroy you on domestic and international politics. If you think 2 percent is a huge amount then you need counseling. Hillary was projected to win 1 month ago by a landslide. Please, don't compare me to a poll. Im not the one who created the polls or particiapted in the polls. Hillary only won because she carried the woman vote. Because she had a woman in the crowd ask her a rehearsed question and started tearing up. Boo whoo hooo.. Is that hard for you to realize or is your legend in the mind talking again? This race for women is more about getting a woman in the white house than American unity....

    By the way Jameson, you didnt comment on my post, you didnt talk about the FACT that she will unfairly tax American Oil companies, you didnt talk about her flip flopping on issues, lobby support out the ying yang or the divisions she has and will create. You didnt talk about SH** to be frank.

    Basically, you didnt talk about anything important. You sidetracked the fact to show that you support Hillary because she's a burnt image in your mind. Learn the facts, then speak please. You're wasting my time.

    NO, You're wrong. Hillary has always talked about Obama(only experience comes to mind). Plus lets not forget the fact that #1 bill is on the sidelines constantly rapping Obama. You're blind!

    Stop looking at her picture for once and hopefully you'll get that image out of your head once and for all. By the way I am an American... An American who has served and still serves to this day. Please dont "TRY" to school me on being an american!!!

    "THERE IS SOMETHING HAPPENING IN AMERICA!" Since August The Honorable Senator Barack Obama has been gaining increasing momentum. In late December, the Obama campaign closed a huge double digit gap in New Hampshire. On January 3rd, the Obama campaign swept Iowa and on January 8th in New Hampshire, (largely a Clinton stronghold) the Clinton regime escaped defeat only by the skin of there teeth by 2 percentage points but not without deploying very NEGATIVE, UNDERHANDED, and SUSPECT tactics which will surely hunt the Clinton regime.

    Despite the inflated overprojections from most polls days before the NH Primary, CLINTON IS NO COMEBACK . Never place too much stock in polls, particularly when vetted against reason, and it was unreasonable to expect a nearly 40 percent voting difference over a 2 week time frame from previous steady and consistent projections. However, the Obama campaign did make significant large margins of gain. The Obama Campaign drew larger crowds compared to both Clintons. The Clinton regime, should have coasted through NH but they limped out barely and it is reasonable for every expert to say that the Clinton regime is underperforming and some triumphant comeback is not the case as the Clinton regime continues to lose ground.

    "THERE IS SOMETHING HAPPENING IN AMERICA!" and it is can be simply put that the Clinton regime "The Establishment" is losing votes and the Barack Obama Campaign "The Future" is gaining votes and delegates. CHANGE is on the Horizon and "Yes ,we can be the CHANGE we want to see in the World when we BELIVE and VOTE for Barack OBAMA (A CHAMPION FOR THE PEOPLE and "THE PEOPLE'S CHAMP!")

    OBAMA '08

    I have been following Hillary's efforts since the early 90s. She is a great leader, and has the energy and intelligence to bring the very best to our nation. She has my vote. She has always had it, while I served in the Air Force and finally retired from the Air National Guard. I respect her and am flattered that she considers me as part of a great team.

    My advice to all you people out there that send in comments about your political beliefs. Say things you like about your favorite candidate. There is no reason to villify a candidate you don't wish to vote for.
    Each and every one of them, republican or democrat is a good American. They are seeking your support. If you don't agree with them on issues, thats why we vote.
    We are lucky to have so many outstanding people running for office.

    The Clintons by their own words were a team working together and he consulted her at times in the White House last time for 2 terms. Under the spirit of the constitution that 2 terms is the max. That team should not be allowed an endrun around the constitution or its amendments by switching from Bill to Hilary.

    A lot of us would have given Bill a third term, alas we couldn"t. I 'm glad the endrun is possible. When the constitution was written, women were not a part of politics. Thank God that has changed. Eleanor Roosevelt would have made a good president. Not her time, now is the time to put a woman in charge. Women are as good as men and are capable of making decisions. Margaret Thatcher, Golda Meir, all the queens of England, leave it to the USA to be the last to admit it.
    go Hillary

    Charlotte, Im sure American's vote because of the best possible canidate, not because Barack is Black, or Hillary a Woman.

    If you're voting for Hillary because she's a woman, it shows you know nothing when it comes to choosing a leader.

    End of message
