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.

    The truth is Hillary is 'the only one' who has used gender, race and religion in this primary to garner votes. The truth is Hillary started and encourages the Florida and Michigan circus in the hopes of changing the numbers in her favor. The truth is Hillary has proven herself to be a corrupt politian who will lie, change the rules and lie again to further her political career. The truth is if we want a woman President, we can and must do much better than Hillary.

    Hmm..Obama does not have enough delegates to win without "a little help from his friends." He doesn't have the popular vote eaither. Pelosi probably is wishing she had cooked up a plot to disenfranchise Puerto Rico, Kentucky.

    She's right. This is terrible. Stop the people from voting now! Stop all of that voting!!

    RE: Pelosi prepared to 'step in' to end race
    This is why I have abandoned the democratic party after 30 years of holding on to it's ideals of serving the people. It's no longer serving the democratic ideals and has gone to elitism and left wing liberalism. Dean, Pelosi an a whole bunch of others had this nomination planned from the beginning. They wanted a candidate who will follow the ultra liberal agenda they have been promoting from the beginning of this primary.

    Hillary Clinton has already committed to Barack Obama's candidacy and therefore has become a party loyalist. She fought hard but couldn't overcome her own fear of losing face with her party. Sorry Bill, you were good but she's gone to the dark side.

    John McCain is a moderate and a sensible lesser of the evils presented to the public in this year's election. Let's hope for the best and save the USA from the liberal elitism of this democratic party disaster. Vote John McCain in 08.

    she, however, is not the only one who is very eager to lie about their motives for doing these things.

    there should be a standard trial after every presidency, to determine whether or not they kept their word, and to throw them into prision if they did not.

    People don't worry about the primaries and especially the November general.

    Diebold and S.ES have already made the choice of President for you.

    Your votes will be counted as these two companies decide.

    US Democracy and Elections are the biggest joke on the planet.

    Zimbabwee has a more open and fairer and accurate election.

    Mugabee for president.

    The Queen of special interests pledging to attack herself?! Please, what about your 2.3 billion dollars worth of earmarks? Has she forgotten about the 600 billion-dollar giveaway she made in Iraq? Where is her gun-toting, whisky drinking, workig, hard working, hard working white people supported attitude now?

    Hillary is our only hope to taking back the house, Hillary is an admirable person that knows how to handle the tough decisions that need to be made, Times were good when the Clintons were in office, we had a surplus now it's all gone, Obama only knows how to do speaches, People don't trust him, You think that after going to a church for 20 years he does not share those values, He's trying to steal the election for only counting 48 states, He knows that he has less of a chance to win if they redo those states with all the names on the ballot, Clinton offered to pay for the re do of the elections and declined, He's only counting 48 states what does that tell u of him, Montana we ask that u think of all the things and see it as a hiring decision, We don't need to have the same mistake that they did in 2000 in FL, Now were stuck with all the depth from Pres Bush, thanks for the decisions the DNC makes

    The "Only One," hill alright! Over the HILL and not the CAPITOL HILL! Once a prepetrator always a predator with no regards to integrity, honesty, or ethics! Even New York is taking her neon lights down and shunting Hillary out of dodge.

    Hillary has spoken…………………………………………..
    “I will follow rules, only when they help me”
    “My father invented the computer while juggling 10 cats and a chainsaw”
    “No matter what I do I am always a victim”
    “I will solve global warming by keeping my mouth shut”
    “Less is always more, except when I have more than more is more”
    “Everything my husband did as president I take credit for, unless you don’t like it then it was his fault”
    “Did I say sniper fire, I meant a lipstick smear”
    “I will lower taxes but spend more and send the bill to Canada”
    “See, I can cry on cue”

    You Obama supporters should shut your mouths if you don't have anything good to say. All I ever hear are negative things coming from your mouths about Hillary.
