(CNN) - Hillary Clinton's campaign is featuring one of Indiana's most popular politicians in its first statewide ad in the state. The spot hits the airwaves Tuesday.

In 'Steel,' Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh says:

"America faces challenging times. We need a leader who'll fight for good jobs, change trade deals like NAFTA, cut taxes for middle class families. Someone who's ready to be commander in chief from day one.

"That leader? Hillary Clinton. I've known Hillary for 20 years. She's got a spine of steel. She'll fight for our jobs, our troops, and the America we love. Strong. Seasoned. She'll always stand up for us."

Primary voters in the state head to the polls May 6.

    Clinton's and Obama's positions on numerous issues is very similar.
    Although Clinton has more experience, it appears that Obama will pull us out of this mess faster. look at how they have been running their respective campaigns. Clinton's campaign has been run poorly compared to Obama's. He may be new to natioanl politics, or younger or less experienced or... , but he is getting the job done. Most of Clinton's supporters are continuing to do so, in a big part due to loyalty. Evan Bayh is no different.

    Hillary went on Leno last week and joked about her telling lies. And she laughted about being under sniper fire. Does she think it is funny to lie to the American people? Does she think it is funny that our boys die in Iraq every day from sniper fire?! There are some things which just aren't funny. Our boys deserve a comander-in-chief who doesn't think their deaths are funny!

    Obama is a serial liar. He kept flip-flopping about his relationship with Rezko, was he or was he not a friend? Did he donate $150K or $250K to his campaign? Was Obama or was he not at the church when Rev. Wright gave those hateful sermons? He said he never heard them but changed his words and said he did during his speech. And what about his lies about thanking the Kennedy family that helped bring his father to America through a scholarship program in 1959. However, the Kennedys didn't get involved with the program until 1960.

    As long as the people know all of her lies and scandals. Indiana could not vote for a person who they cannot trust. We now know she is for free trade and that is a part of NAFTA.

    Spine of steel? Would that be foreign or domestic? And would it be strong enough to take the initiative and fire someone on her staff that violates her stated trade policy?

    Anytime someone that has a good standing with their constituents comes out for Clinton the doors open wide for a great amount of criticism from any and all Obama fans. The media has already campaigned enough for him to last for a couple of elections. How about showing some equality in the press and quit piling on! It ain't over till its over!

    Obamabots, lay low on those suspucious koolaid and stop bashing Hillary. You are the ones who are negative and throwing the kitchen sink at Hillary. You are the ones who are hateful, angry and dividing the country. You're backing your candidate so strongly but there is no substance for your reason.

    Yes, America faces challenging times. We need to change our politics at home and abroad. Only Barack Obama can bring that change. Hillary Clinton is the continuation of the past. She has ties to special interest, she is tricky and dishonest. She voted for the war in Iraq. Barack Obama has the leadership skill and judgment to unite, inspire and stand up for us in America. Obama’s policy platforms will move us toward the better life in America and restore respect once again in the world.

    Obama is our guy. That's why he was criticized by the columbian president on trade! Not Hillary...

    This Hillary bashing is really getting old. Folks supporting Obama are doing it to spite Senator Clinton for the wrong reasons. It appears that Mr Obama has been very uncomfortable answering questions, and stutters instead. The media has overlooked and overlooked his inconsistencies. How can your conscience allow you to vote for a man that was "advised" by a minister that spoke with so much hatred and malice? I think most of America has gone insane. Where is the Lord when you need him?

    How can she get away with this? She supported NAFTA. She pushed for it , as in the papers published while she was in the White House as first lady. She voted for the war in Iraq. How can America be so blind by the lies?

    Just like the story she told about the pregnant woman, a lie and Bosnia. Shame on you Hillary. Just as something as simple as bowling, she said she was an excellent bowler, in fact better than Barack, but she did poorly when she was put to the test. All mouth and no action. Day one. Please.

    Congratulations Hillary. This also shows good judgement on Senator Bayh for endorsing the right candidate. I am proud of Senator Bayh and proud of Indiana!

    If Hillary Clinton told me the sun was shining I would have to look out the window to see if it was true. Does anyone believe a word this psycho says? I amazes me that many out there are just now realizing that Hillary is a lying scumbag. She hasn't changed a bit since she was in the White House before. Where were you guys?
