Clinton launches new ad in Nevada and South Carolina

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

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

    How true a statement. Hillary is the ONLY candidate in HISTORY that has dedicated as much time, money, and efforts for family, women, veterans, children, PEOPLE. They ALL talk about it, but SHE really has walked the walk. Obama has great intentions, but he's just not ready yet, perhaps in a term or two. The republican candidates are old news and there will be no real changes if any are elected. I find it amazing that a woman is FINALLY running for President, she is by FAR the most qualified, and we still deal with the sexist comments and comparisons. A man with the same experience and qualifications would be expected to run for President. If she doesn't win, every person (especially every woman) in this nation that doesn't vote for her should be ashamed of buying into the subtle anti-woman leadership brainwashing that society has been drilled into our heads. It's not about voting for a woman, it's about voting for the ONLY candidate that is really in the position of making real POSITiVE changes that this country so desperately needs.

    I Like ambitious agressive women who know how to be and are proud to be women. What I love and would love to see more of is that Senator Hilary Clinton does not have to be one of the guys to win. She can be herself an intelligent powerful woman with insight clarity and vision. In 2004 I wroe the senator and asked her to run for President because in my heart and mind she was much more capabale of Beating George Bush than Senator Kerry. However she did not feel she was ready. Well timing is key. I wish her luck if she had listened she would be going into her second term now.

    Ha ha, first of all EVERYTHING Hillary does is scripted.

    Second of all she just now remembered that politics isn't a game. Haven't Barack being chanting that since day one?

    Second now I have Hillary talking about "asking the hard questions". Something else she got from Barack. Does this woman not have a mind of her own.

    Honestly, I would vote for anybody before I voted for Hilllary aka Ms. Scripted.

    Hillary Clinton is the best prepared Democrat candidate to seek the Party's Presidential nomination in years. She is educated, remarkably articulate, and highly experienced in international affairs and domestic issues from her days of being in the White House as well as currently serving in the US Senate. The people of this country still have not learned a lesson from the election of George W. Bush to the highest office in this country. Before being elected President of this great Republic, he was a moron, poorly or inadequately educated, and remarkably inarticulate.

    He was inadequately educated and has even taken pride in saying he was a "C" student in college and now has Ph.D.'s working for him. This kind of simpleton did not deserve to be a President. He was poorly educated because his father managed to see to it he passed through a university without having to work for required grades. Anyone with a degree knows that universities require students to have at least a "B" gpa in their majors. He is remarkably inarticulate to the point of embarassment revealed in Presidential press conferences when he stumbles and grasps at the same trite phrases even when they have nothing to do with the questions posed.

    This country is in a mess due to this ignorant man. The country still hasn't learned that experience is necessary to handle the office of President. Instead, they look for cosmetic issues as the basis for their votes. They treat a Presidential election like it was another "American Idol" contest. Unfortunately, the voters are going to continue to make the same mistakes over and over until they learn the hard way – from painful experience – that they need to actually look at what the candidates stand for, and how experienced they are.

    If Obama wins the Democratic nomination, he will fail to carry a single sounther or western state. He will not be able to carry many midwestern states which will give the election to the Republican nominee regardless of who he is. Obama is simply too inexperienced to be President. If he is elected like George Bush was, he will make an equal mess of the Presidency.

    I have been married for 44 years, you think my husband and I don't talk. Hillary does not strike me as the kind of woman who just stands by and doesn't voice her opinion. I'd be willing to bet there have been some heated discusions between these two on polictical decisions, not to mention the other thing. Two for the price of one, what a deal..............

    H.Clinton had no contribution towards the economy in 90's. Her major contribution was the botched health care reform program in nineties or inviting rich people to stay in Lincoln bedroom in White House for cash. She must not shamelessly seek votes based on who she is married to. An astronaut's wife does not automatically qualify to be the best suited to go on a mission to the Space. The famous tear moment happened because the Hillary defeat in New Hampshire loomed large at the time- she was not crying at the thought she would not be able to serve this country. She changes her statements,speeches and votes in Senate according to the situation. How many positions she has taken so far on Iraq, immigration and health care? You do not want a Clinton dynasty after the Bush dynasty. She sounds like the Bush administration (defending itself on Iraq policy and questioning patriotism of everybody who criticizes it) when she adopts "holier than thou" attitude by saying that only she can take on the Republican nominee in the general election. Senator Obama does not resort to pandering like her. He is not a divisive and polarizing political figure like her. And now all the right minded Democratic party heavyweights are begnining to support Senaotor Obama. Even the governor of SC who is a Republican had great things to say about Senator Obama's broad appeal. He can win the general this year. Go Barrack Go! The masses are with you!!!!

    Hillary supporters really need to wake up and start reading about Hillary and what she is really like. Look and read about how she was when she was the First Lady and see what people really thought of her, and I mean those that worked with her and were privy to things I'm sure she doesn't want brought up in this campaign.
    Just go to http//www.newsweek.com/id/81600 and read it all. Your eyes will surely be opened.
    We are in trouble in this country now but if you vote Hillary Clinton in, you are just asking for the same thing all over again.
    It is time to give someone like Obams a real chance to turn this country around.

    Yeah. Listen. She "found her voice". Ask yourself what that means.

    Do you really think she meant is that literally?
    Don't you think she meant she found her voice in terms of this election?
    That's the way I see it, but then I'm not trying to find something negative to say about her.

    Most of the comments on this blog are myopic. Now I understand why everyone one of you wants to have Obama has president.

    Yes, she found her voice. All these years she has been the voice for others. Now she found her voice and realised that it is okay to be human and vulnerable. She doesn't have to put on tough exterior anymore, she can be herself and let poeple see her for herself and at the same time work to help others. Satisfied?
    Go Hillary. Stay true to yourself. 100% behind you.

    8 years of pillow talk does not qualify as experience. The only thing she tried was health care and that failed.
