Clinton is up with a new ad in Nevada and South Carolina.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Democrat Hillary Clinton launched a new ad in Nevada and South Carolina Friday that seems designed to show a softer side of the New York senator.

The 30-second spot called "Listen" features clips from Clinton's victory speech in New Hampshire and is set to music that sounds straight of out NBC's The West Wing.

“Over the last week I listened to you and in the process I found my own voice," Clinton is shown saying. "You helped remind everyone that politics isn’t a game. This campaign is about people. About making a difference in your lives. It’s time we had a president who stands up for all of you.”

– CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney

    I wonder if Obama is elected as President, will he take the oath on the bible like all the ones before him or will he use the Koran? Is he Christian or Muslim, not that it matters but people are calling the Mormon religion a cult and giving Hucklebe a hard time, why isn't anyone wondering about Obama? Will he really unite the country? I belive Hillary can unite this country more so than Obama. So I hope she succeeds and if she doesn't I will still support the democratic party and their nominee, because the republicans have just about destroyed all of this country.

    As a Hispanic American of Mexican decent I agree with the author. First of all I totally agree that Hillary Clinton is out of touch with ALL Americans. Let me say that I am a wife, a mother, and most importantly working mother someone who she SHOULD be able to reach. The problem is it is apparent to the American voter that the Clinton does just have a lust to be in the white house again. Take for example the fact that it is HER supporters filing the lawsuit against the Culinary Union which IS mostly comprised of Hispanics (Nevada) a lawsuit that could disenfranchise many HISPANIC voters. So in all honesty does Hillary Clinton really get what working women of any race are going through? Does she get it at all? Or does she just want the Clintons part 3?

    Are you Anti-Hillary people really serious?? You'd rather elect to the White House a hot-aired, smooth-talker with little to NO real political experience? It baffles me that people will vote for someone with little to no substance, someone who has offered few details about how he plans to make his “changes” or how he plans to bring the country together because of their unreasonable vendetta against a woman who is deserving of respect. Hillary Clinton is clearly the candidate who has the know-how to run a country and who will demand respect from other world leaders. Obama will be looked upon by other world leaders as a "rooky", another American-elected mockery. He'll accomplish absolutely nothing. I think people need to step back and really evaluate the big picture. This election should not be based on who is the most eloquent speaker. Get real before it's too late, before the US spends the next 4 years being laughed at. It's time the US takes its place back in the world's standing. Hillary Clinton will be the candidate who will make this happen.

    Obama has no experience to lead our dear country. For God's sake the man just got into the Senate and he wants to be president. Is the Presidency that cheap?

    Faced with a difficult decision in the Senate, Obama just votes present. Is that the kind of president we want? He has accomplished nothing in his time in the Senate.

    Hillary is the Woman to run this country.

    As another commentator rightly said what has Obama done for his poor relatives in Kenya? Not much. Yet he thinks he can change America. Let him start small by changing the lives of his improverished Kenyan relatives.

    Obama also has muslim roots which he tried to hide. How come his mother married two muslims in a row?

    Obama will loose to any republican candidate. With blacks refusing to vote Clinton in Michigan, this race will turn racial and Obama will loose.

    Go Clinton!

    Hillary touots about experience!! What experience?
    She has done nothing except talk about her experience, which when one tries to find what she actually did, can only find a failed attempt to take over control of the best health care system in the world. She knew she was in trouble with that when and she then tried to keep it secret. Thank God that it was ordered to be public and the nation found out . It was then that her world fell down around her, and the best system in the world was saved?

    In her many tax payer trips around the world she was a sightseer. She had no formal meetings with world leaders, and no political mission.

    She has attempted to change history in her books by making embellishing herself and not telling the truth. If you want to know what she was like please read all of Dick Morris' books about her. He exposes her brilliantly. In those books you will see that she has actually done nothing but plot the Clinton's climb to power as well as the rotten side of her character which comes out more frequently than one would lilke to see in a president. It was bad enough as first lady of Arkansas and the United States, but enough is enough. Ask the poor employees of the White House Travel Office!

    Do you really expect me to believe that she actually shed a tear over other people – give me a break!
