Clinton launches TV ad in Montana

Clinton campaigned in Puerto Rico over the weekend.'

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton is hitting the television airwaves in Montana, five days before that state holds one of the primary season's last two contests.

The 30-second ad, called "Only One," is a largely positive spot that promotes the New York senator's plan to tackle the special interests in Washington.

"She's the only one in this campaign who voted against the Bush energy bill against six billion dollars to the oil companies, the only one taking on the insurance companies to guarantee health coverage for every American and she's the one who'll end fifty five billion dollars in giveaways to corporate special interests and cut taxes for the middle class instead," the ad's narrator states.

The American Leadership Project, a pro-Clinton independent group also launched an ad in the state earlier this week.

Montana and South Dakota hold the final two Democratic primaries next Tuesday. Barack Obama is widely viewed to have an advantage in both states.

    Where is all this moneyy coming from. Has she paid her bills yet or will Obama end up paying them for her. I hope she thanks him.

    After living in Montana for a few years.....the thing you have to understand is that these folks shot straight from the hip. I would be surprised if she wins.

    Poor Hillary, She lost so much:
    The support of senators who backed in her bid for the Presidency
    The respect of her campaign team who threw her under the bus,
    The confident of her husband ( without the blue dress )
    The Kennedy family Who now hates her
    women in general ,( who thinks she had a sex change and is neither male nor female
    Blacks who she constantly insults( at least those educated enough to recognize it
    Donors who feels that she is really vying for GOP VP.
    The Rednecks who dislikes her thirst for Canadian whiskey
    white working American, they know she is behind NAFTA................../...

    Curious, how did she pay for that ad? On credit?

    So let me get this straight, she lied about her Bosnia story, she is bending the DNC rules on Florida and Michigan for her own benefit, she has mismanaged her camaign and in $ 20 million debt, she has lost to Barack Obama in primary delagetes and behind in Super Delagetes and STILL she is a better candidate for fall. You have to really give it to the Hillary Supporters for being so "supportive" of her when all you see is that she is NOT the ONE.

    Hillary tackling special interests in Washington? She REPRESENTS special interests in Washington.

    When Senator Feingold valiantly pushed to control these interests' (McCain-Feingold) strangle-hold on US policy, Senator Clinton allegedly told him that he was living in a dream-world. Do people really belive that Hillary's affection for these special interests will suddenly vanish overnight?

    Did she mention that her old grand daddy used to take her elk hunting in Montana,and once they were pinned down by sniper fire.She ran across an old mountain man that moved to the mountains because he was turned away from the hospital because he did'nt have insurance.She told him don't worry if you miss the primary ,I'll sue and get a new primary.

    Jesus, this is just getting to the point of no return with the Clintons. It's like we are in this BAD horrific nightmare and can't wake up!!!

    I mean how many times does this old record keep playing before the needle breaks!! It's NO wonder her crowns are getting smaller and smaller during her campaign speeches.. The camera men don't even do a "wide screen' view anymore because the crowds are just NOT there.

    Also, Sen. Obama is beating her by double-digits in both Montana and South Dakota. So this whole nonsense is just getting more and more painful to watch. I wish they would just put Hillary Clinton out of her misery, because HONESTLY, she's getting on my LAST nerve with all her crying and whining. I'm sick of her and I'm sick of her foolishness. I don't want to even mention Bill Clinton, he's a disgrace as a former President. That's where he needs to stay in the PAST, his Presidency is OVER, DONE, FINITO and soon his wife will be a thing of the PAST too. So they will at least have that in common when they are rocking in their rocking chair together in a couple of more years.

    Yes, she is the only one wrecking the dem. party. She (in her own perverted mind) is the only one who deseves the presidency. She is the only one who had to endure sniper fire, She is the only one who condones billyboy's affairs. She is the only one who has the ugliest pants suits in the western hemisphere. SHE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO SHOULD DROP OUT NOW!!.

    I'm surprised that there's no mention of her being the 'only one' that doesn't know the race is over yet.

    People, don't let Hillary Clinton fool you, given the fact that she has taken more money from these clowns than even John McCain. Months ago, she said that special interests represent real people, but now she flip-flopped on this by saying that only i can take them on.
