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.

    What Senator Clinton should do is release the archives from her White House years that would detail her much vaunted experience. But alas,the release has been scheduled for well after the elections. Interesting how that works.

    Bruce,,, for hillary to realease her antics (vaunted might give merit) of her white house years would just create more hatred and fuel for an already over zealous mob of commentors. For the good of the country , IF hillary is elected , I don't want to see them go public. I already know enough about her time as first lady to know what will come from this event. If she is not elected I would love for all her mindless followers to finally see who and what she really is

    I assume Obama will also talk about Yucca Mt. in his ads...that is, if his wife Michelle allows it. We know who is running for president, don't we?

    The Hillary nutcracker won't work on Obama, Michelle cracked his a long time ago

    I agree profoundly with akas.

    Even foreigners want us to vote for Obama. So I think this video just screams out why we need to elect him:

    Mrs Clinton is obviously the most qualified candidate in both parties.I'm not an American but I stay up late to watch the debates.So far she is the only candidate that demonstrated the qualites and experience that US needs during these turbulent times.

    Obama may be brilliant , could make good C and C for the Future but ceratinly not ready for the 2008 White House.U S politics isn't about looking nice and talking sweet; it's about tough choices and decisions.Americans have to separate enthusiasm founded on wishes and dreams from pedigree, know-how, and a demonstrated capacity to deliver

    Hillary Clinton is always one step behind. John Edwards rolled out his healthcare plan, then Clinton rolled out nearly the same exact plan! Barack Obama talks about hope and change, now we're suppose to be convinced that Hillary is an agent of change. Ooookay. John Edwards talks about poverty, then Hillary at the last minute of this campaign, introduces a bill to fight poverty. Obama unveils an add in Nevada, Clinton immediately follows suit. Obama unveils a second add in Nevada, Clinton immediately unveils a second add. Barack Obama has worked at the local, state, and national level. He turned down high-paying jobs to work as a community activist and a civil rights lawyer. He IS an agent of change, and isn't worth hardly what Clinton and Edwards are worth. He's still in touch with the American people. Barack '08

    This article was simply telling of Clinton launching a second ad in Nevada and you Obama lovers jumped on her like a pack of wolves. My God! Take a good look at who you are supporting. I really don't understand why Obama's supporters are so blind to his weak "qualifications" to be president. Just listen, really LISTEN, to what he says when he's not reading from a script. There is nothing there! It is so hard to believe that after his short tenure in politics and without a meaningful platform, he thinks he's ready to leap-frog to the highest position in our government and become, basically, the leader of the free world. "Hope, change, and dreams" all sound good, but without a clear-cut agenda for our country, they are simply empty words. And, by the way, "dreams" (the way you HOPE things will be) are not the same thing as "vision" which is based in intelligent foresight and the utter reality of what it takes to get the job done. Clinton and Edwards, like them or not, have a clear, specific agenda and the vision to understand what it takes to acheive their goals for our country. I earnestly hope voters will truly evaluate what all the candidates are really saying, open their minds, and select the one best suited for the highest office in our land.

    To Natekng: If you havent noticed already, Obama leads and everyone else scrambles to keep up...he doent need to watch the polls to know what the people want to hear. His message hasnt change from day one...Hillary on the other hand has had what , 5 different messages in Dec alone? Think about it people, why should you have to prove to people that you have friends and your "likeable"? Thats just creepy to me.

    "This article was simply telling of Clinton launching a second ad in Nevada and you Obama lovers jumped on her like a pack of wolves. My God!" It happens no matter who the candidates or supporters are.
    "I really don't understand why Obama's supporters are so blind to his weak "qualifications" to be president." Such as his time as a low-paid community activist and civil rights lawyer? His eight years in the State Senate? His several years in the U.S. Senate? He's got more time in elected office than Hillary, and has a lot more experience than Bill Clinton did in '92. Bill Clinton had ZERO national and international experience in '92.
    "Just listen, really LISTEN, to what he says when he's not reading from a script. There is nothing there!" You could say that about anyone.
    "It is so hard to believe that after his short tenure in politics" Longer than Hillary's. Sixteen years as an elected official's wife doesn't count as experience in elected office.
    "and without a meaningful platform" Huh?
    "he thinks he's ready to leap-frog to the highest position in our government and become, basically, the leader of the free world. "Hope, change, and dreams" all sound good, but without a clear-cut agenda for our country, they are simply empty words". Without a clear-cut agenda? If you stop getting all of your news from http://www.hillaryclinton.com then you may know that to be untrue.
    "Clinton and Edwards, like them or not, have a clear, specific agenda and the vision to understand what it takes to acheive their goals for our country." Forcing everyone to buy health insurance from the private sector, or face the consequences. Real nice, those mandates.
    "I earnestly hope voters will truly evaluate what all the candidates are really saying, open their minds, and select the one best suited for the highest office in our land." So do I. Barack '08

    Ellie, Not a word leaves Clinton's mouth without hours of research. Every policy she speaks have spent hours with our policy team determining who it will upset, who it will impress etc. Clinton's agenda is to be elected by any means possible and then do whatever she wants when in office.

    She is no different from Bush, she is for big government, foreign intervention, socialized programs, increased taxes to pay for all the programs to repay many of the people who donated to her. To talk of Clinton like she is the savior of the country is absurd.

    There is only 1 honest candidate in the whole bunch and that is Ron Paul. The only candidate who sticks to his beliefs and has policies built on what is right, not what will appease people.

    A vote for Clinton is a vote for the continuation of the fall of the United States. Do your country a favor and research Ron Paul and our Constitution.

    Why on EARTH would we take Sen. Obama's name into consideration when deciding whether or not to support his presidential campaign?

    When will the canidates, either Republican or democrat start talking about where they are going to store the growing supply of necular waste. They have no plans for a storage facility. Not only do they have no plans for the existing problem, they want to continue building new facilities and create more waste with no plan for disposal. Wake up America!

    I tell you what Hillary. You want my vote. Why not start an effort to move the nuclear dump site to Washington DC. Might as well use that site as DC doesn't seem to be used for anything useful to the American people. Maybe then someone will vote for you and you'll actually be taking a stand on something.

    Steve you live in Oregon, does the Yucca Mt. affect you? or you just trying to be a jerk? perhaps you don't like our government, then vote! excercise your rights, but be respectful of these people, because they go there to serve and perhaps not all of them are honorable, but they are a representation of our society and they deserve our respect. how about a little civility in our debates and discourse. be a patriot and care for your country enough to vote for an elected official you feel comfortable with and be polite enough to debate your point without some sarcastic moronic comment that means nothing to anyone with a basic education.

    Obama has only one agenda for the American people and that is to blame Hillary Clnton for all our problems.
