WASHINGTON (CNN) - When it comes to campaign commercials, Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are going where no candidate has gone before.
Obama and Clinton have spent a combined $110 million on TV ads to this point; we've had a race that's literally gone on since last summer for ad spending," said Evan Tracey of TNS Media Intelligence/Campaign Media Analysis Group, CNN's consultants on campaign commercials.
"We're beyond what has been record spending in previous presidential nomination campaigns. John Kerry spent close to $20 million to get the nomination four years ago. Barack Obama's already approaching $70 million."
Keep beating on Hillary, Obama folks.
That just unifies more of us behind HER and against the hypocritical hype of hope.
We love this woman with all her imperfections.
Beats the pretend nice guy.
Look down on Americans while you seek their votes- wow, that is a winning strategy Obama and all you supporters blogging hate.
Sad. There are so many things that could be fixed in this country with money like this. Instead it's used to watch these two candidates duke it out. I really wish Obama could just run an ad showing all the clips where Hillary has lied. I realize that would be too many for a 30 or even 60sec spot, but at least it would end this thing. Then maybe the rest of the money could be used for some good.
Most of this article quotes one person, Evan Tracey. Thanks for making an essentially opinion-driven article look like a news item, CNN.
The Clinton name is a household name be it good or bad. Senator Obama is having to get out there so that the people can learn about him and get to know him. What is the big deal?
Barak Obama needs to buy the country's support. Sad, very sad.
Hillary Clinton won't be happy until she has annoyed every single US citizen to the point of migraine headache.
The Obama-bots must be sleeping in...These blogs are uaually full of their garbage before anyone else gets a chance..
you talk about Obama’s cloths and shoes, but Why is that you never talk about Hillary’s remark that she would "totally obliterate Iran" when she becomes a president.??!!??!!??!!
Shame on you CNN.
Vote for Hillary! She's been tested under fire....oh I forgot...not so much. I guess that was one of her ooops moments. Yeah, she's the one I want waking up at 3 AM and sending our people into combat...NOT!!!
Yes, Cinton's tempo is try to destroy Obama
Keep it up Hillary! You are showing us what it takes to win and to lead and we are behind you all the way!
She is just spinning, and spinning around in circles faster and faster.
And Clinton has been getting much more bang for her buck, it would seem, since she' s winning in the states that matter most to the democrats come November.
seems to me if these two wanted to help the people as much as they say they should set a spending limit and donate the rest to help people that need help now that would be a real change
She sets the tone of negativity. Said so well. Yep, what a great leader she is. ACK!
Obama has to show his face more compared to a candidate that America already knows.
And we will spend 70 million more if need be to get rid of this rash Hillary! Her 'tempo' is scare tatics and 'Old Politics'
Sen Obama set trends and Hillary follow or zerox it and call it her own like she did with Sen. Obama debate 'The president gives the orders and the generals follow' She's so lame!
I am so sick of Hillarys 3 am add I could >>>!!! Please can't we see something original and not so negative from her camp. i am certainly tired of her adds, her actions, etc. By the way I am a w/f over 50 and make under 50 but I am not stupid!
Our time has come.
We, Hillary supporters are fed up with the name-calling insults and the hate and the misinformation spread about us and our candidate.
We are not ignorant, uneducated bigots.
We just support a different candidate.
Keep it up- our turn for sabotage and swiftboating will come in Nov.
In Nov, the Hill raisers will knock Obama to the bottom of the trash heap where he belongs.
We are sick and tired of the insults.
Yes he spends more.Because she out of money she can't aford it
Obama is just wasting money at this point!!
People are beginning to know him and come to coclusion that he is not ready.
Hillary is more polished on all issues.
Hillary is a stronger candidate who is willing to go toe to toe.
money bags obama can outspend her all he wants, it doesn't matter she still holds her own against him. americans are seeing his inexperience, and controversial friends and the real obama is becoming clearer.
why hasn't CNN spoke about HRC's campaign paying people for their vote in Penn. Obama's camp did not. This is a known practice in Penn.
Is it legal?
