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

  1. LOL!

    I hear Hillary is really a transplant from the planet Omicron Persei 8. That's why she has no 'emotions' and no 'soul'. I mean, did you even SEE a tear when she 'cried'? Coincidence? I think not. No emotions. No soul. Not human. Everyone, spread this around! America, no, the world has to know!!!!

  3. LOL!


    Thank you for the 'reality check'!

    You people enthralled with Hillary are bizarre. Do you really think the other 1/3 of the country (Independents and Republicans) would cross the aisle and vote for yet another term of a scandal-ridden Clinton Presidency?

  4. LOL!

    "The facts are that, Hillary has a track record in politics and has contributed, whther you accept it or not. What is Obama's history or track records?"

    Gee, is that track record you speak of in the senate...or as First Lady?
    Please read this article from the New York Times, maybe you could learn a thing or two: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/26/us/politics/26clinton.html?ref=us

    "In seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, Mrs. Clinton lays claim to two traits nearly every day: strength and experience. But as the junior senator from New York, she has few significant legislative accomplishments to her name. She has cast herself, instead, as a first lady like no other: a full partner to her husband in his administration, and, she says, all the stronger and more experienced for her “eight years with a front-row seat on history.”

    He hasn't fooled me either. I saw the piece on his 'granny' on CNN. Seems like he's only visited once in his whole life. And the interview was more on granny's rememberance of Obama's absent father instead of Obama himself because she doesn't even know Barack Heussin Obama. He really ought to be thoroughly and completed disgusted with himself. While millionaire grandson continues to promote his ideas, without plans, of change for the better for all people of all races, etc, etc, etc. granny is still sitting on a dirt floor shucking corn. I'm not saying bring to our wonderful land here, but build the woman a decent place to live and some food for christ's sake. Pathetic.

    I think she is going for the Princess Diana look. Look at the hair style. Anyhow I wonder why is she still married to Bill? If she truly represents the women's voice then she should divorce him. He cheated on you Hillary! Where is your dignity? Be a woman, stand up for yourself!

    I totally agree with John S. People don't get caught up in the hype. We do need
    change but not the same Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Clinton. Choose carefully.

    The fruit does not fall far from the tree Bushs, and the Clintons over 24 years
    of presidency the same old politics no change. Please choose carefully.

    Stop all the crap and look at what the candidates have done while in office. And make judgments on there records not sombody's biased opinion of them. look at there accomplishments and there failures then make an informed decision. Anyone can stand and say I will do this and that but just what have they done for the people of this country.

    Maybe she should start speaking with a Spanish accent in Nevada:

    GREENVILLE, S.C. — Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday she sees her sometimes Southern accent as a virtue.

    "I think America is ready for a multilingual president," Clinton said during a campaign stop at a charter school in Greenville, S.C.

    The New York senator — who said she's been thinking about critics who've suggested that she tried to put on a fake Southern accent in Selma, Ala. — noted that she's split her life between Arkansas, Illinois and the East Coast.

    Clinton added a Southern lilt to her voice last week when addressing a civil rights group in New York City headed by the Rev. Al Sharpton. On Monday, dealing with a microphone glitch at a fundraiser for young donors, she quoted former slave and underground railroad leader Harriet Tubman.

    Some people think they must win the nomination at all cost. Even if it means distorting the records of others, showing extreme emotion to court sympathy.
    This election is not about gender and race. It is about the destiny of the nation and if this country doesn't rise above these, we may be voting based on our emotions and not from sound judgement.

    I am an Obama supporter, however; I was not specifically against Clinton until lately. The negative tactics being used by Clinton and her husband are depressing. It is a sign that she just simply will not unite our country like Obama will. He has remained poised and calm as of yet, and I expect him to for the rest of the campaign. I have always liked Bill Clinton but the remarks he made in the speech made him appear desperate and irritated, just as Hillary has appeared to me for the past week or so. It is not only unappealing- It is also scary. We need Obama's poise and dignity. We don't need a president who frantically does whatever it takes to repair an image and get ahead. Also, I think we've seen enough of a president who cares more about winning than about uniting our country and our world. Obama will improve our standing with the rest of the world and he will improve our domestic conditions! VOTE OBAMA AND WE WILL SEE THE CHANGE WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!
    I agree with you; however, judging from the nasty remarks, Obama has no chance of winning anyway.

Take this opportunity to really get to see and know who your candidates are before you jump on the band-wagon. We are a country in times of change. Mabey not the "change some Dem / Reps are talking about, but change in a sense that we are at the cross-roads of what direction our country goes fowards into the future.

What Tears??? its SOOOO hard for her – what the hell does she know about the ordinary guy or gals problems – she been living in mansions paid for by the tax payer for 35 years (almost) and eats with silver cutlery every day – when is the last time she did laundry or grocery shopping?

    Why is JOHN EDWARDS not seen as an alternative???

    For the very least I am sure that Se Clinton will never 'Vote' to support any action to 'Change' a country TOTALLY, after she declared that she is in opposition to it. ...

    No wonder some out there feel that it’s the best choice for someone else to ‘unite’ this country. He gained your trust by declared that he is in opposition to the war, and yet voted for financial support to push the ‘Changes’ and changed other’s homeland totally.

    Great ‘UNITY’ for America, and gigantic ‘CHANGES’ for country out there… Yes! ‘CHANGE We Can Believe In'. Cause he already shown it to all of us.

    in order to implement change, which is Obama's fight song, you need a plan . So far he has not provided any specifics. I still believe that the best candidate to get something approaching sanity in the white house is Hillary. I would definitly, at this time, support a run by Obama after Hillary's term expires.
