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.

    Does she plan on paying for these ads? I bet they're smart enough to get it up front.

    This is the thing about her that really gets to me the most. She never pays her bills. She owes the Univ. of Indiana alone $55,000. She's in debt around 20 million last I heard.

    One question none of her supporters are willing to answer is: If she can't manage a campaign how can she manage the budget for the USA?

    She's also the only one that won't capture her party's nomination.

  5. Hillary is NUTS!

    Does the ad highlights her talking points in SD yesterday when she said:

    "My father started working a fulltime job at the age of 11 ........ and my mother started a fulltime job at the age of 13"


    Does that ad highlight Hillary Lunatic Clinton's new lie?

    Hillary Clinton it is over. You can not win. Save your $ for your retirement. Use your Senate position to carry out good works of public service. I used to repsect you, but not any more. The fact is that as an older Female I initially wanted you to win, but you were found wanting and your intregity is gone. Obama stepped up to the task and has shown tremendouse leadership ability to focus the energies and anger of the American people into action. The position of who should be president is much bigger than you or me and too important to execise affirmative action. As Obama recently reminded, us the position of The President of the United states is a public service job. Obama is the best capable to carry out the responsibilities of this job.

    This lady just doesn't get it!

    Hillary it's over, over, over! You remind me of the boxer who gets knocked out cold ,wakes up, and asks his manager, "what round is it"?

    Only one candidate would so polarize the country ... keeping it steeped in the partisan bickering that has resulted in GRIDLOCK.

    We know who she is...

    We can't afford MORE OF THE SAME. We know it dosen't work.

    Speaking of oil . . . what happened to your summer relief at the pumps for gasoline to the American People?

    The "one-time" amount of around 40 dollars saved from your once proposed offer possibly could have come in handy for the rest of the entire year.

  18. Montana is Obama Country

    All Hillary talked about in Montana is what her husband did in the 1990's..

    She has not record to speak of for herself... Hillary only wants Montana to think about Bill and his record... He wasn't that great for Montana farmers and the small- business man. Non Profits (and there are many here in Montana) did not make great strides either......

    Obama is supported by NRA, Montana Sportsmen, smallbusiness owners and many, many other groups as well as 42 present and past legislative people.

    Lee Enterprise polls shows 52% Barack Obama and 35% Hillary Clinton..

    This Red state will be Blue in the fall.........

    .................Montana is Barack Obama Country.................

    Clinton is the only one who has experienced sniper fire.

    Clinton is the only one who claims to be a constant victim.

    Clinton is the only one who has campaigned with heavy negatives.

    Clinton is the only one who's math shows her as the winner.

    Clinton is the only one who will be out of sight after next week.

    People in Montana;
    If you are true democrats and not Rush Limbough vipers you will not vote for Hillary, even if you prefer her over Obama.
    Everyone with common sense knows she can not win and she is determined to split the party. Actually if you vote for her you will be helping to split the party and perhaps give the election to McCain.
    McCain and Clinton are both owned and directed by the money power in Washington. If either one of those two gets elected, absolutely nothing will change and the true voice of the people will be defeated once again

    Hillary says the superdelegates should support who they think will the better president, well that is unless she won the state, then they should be bound to listening to their constituents. When people like Richardson do this, he is labled a Judas.

    Hillary says Michigan and Florida should count, well that is except for when she agreed that they wouldnt count, and only changed her mind when she realized she was losing. Only then does she claim differntly.

    Hillary says let the voters decide, all the votes should be counted, well that is except for caucuses because that throws off her math, and never mind the hundreds of thousands of people in Michigan that didnt get to vote for Obama, she doesn't think they should count of course.

    She keeps changing her story. You got to love the Clinton hypocrisy.

    Tackle special interests?

    She's a "special interest" all on her own; that interest being the Presidency, which she has proved she'll do anything (including lie, slander others, and distort facts) to obtain.

    I think Mrs. Clinton needs to tackle cleaning her own house before going after others. Furthermore, I have to ask all of her supporters –if she is so willing to compromise any principle to win, what makes her think she will listen to you and represent your best interests if she is elected?

    We've had a President who hasn't listened to the will of the people for the past two terms. I for one, don't want the same for another.
