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.

    Hillary should have muzzled Bill when she first thought of running. His big mouth and grandstanding put me in the Obama camp.

    So Obama rubber stamped Bush's energy bill, huh. How do you y'all feel about paying $5/gallon for gas? Yeah, that's change we can all believe in.

    Great ad and I'm sure not unlike PA, OH, ID and TX Clinton is being outspent 2-1, 3-1 or even 4-1 by Obama, but not surprisingly she keeps winning the big MUST-WIN states for Democrats in November. Obama just keeps spending and spending and she keeps winning and winning. That bodes well for her in the general election because likely the Republicans will have considerable resources. She can win the big states while being outrageously outspent. Way to go HRC. We are behind you 100% ALL THE WAY to Denver and beyond!

    Montana...home of the open range, despicable winters, and now Hillary's fans.

    Obama won't have a chance–unless he can somehow get the endorsement of the Marlboro man.

    If you were looking to fill an executive position, would you hire the candidate with impressive interviewing skills but no record of accomplishment?

    Hillalry is a liar, and she cannot be trusted. Do we want her and Bill in the white house again? I should say not –Because Bill might find another young intern to pay with. He is such a jerk! He has tarnished his once shiny armour.

    Time to bow out now Senator Clinton. How much does it take for an intelligent person to know when they are not wanted. When the right woman comes along, trust the American people to want her for our President. Right now there is only distrust with both the Clintons. It is not your time now and will never be your time. Give us a break and go back to the Senate or just go home and bake those cookies.
    It's change from the old and time for the new, and that means we want Senator Barack Obama.

    She's the only one who lobbied Congress for a $20 billion fund for infrastructure after 9/11 and then shuttled the money to various corporate interests. We New Yorkers have a very long memory and will never forget this!!

    Too many problems with Hillary. I think the nation will vote on "straightalk" -AND- "change".

    dennis from texas. So what. Do you think that Hillary is the only one with muscles. Hillary and her crew tried to buy the votes in FL and MI.
    The woman is a crook and so is Bill.

    Sen Clinton, you are much too intelligent to stay in the disheveled democrat party. Please begin your run for president as an independent; you will get more votes than BO.

    Please stop giving her money, so she goes further in debt. No one should help her out. With new campaign laws thanks to John McCain she will be out most of the money if she cant pay it all off in a few months.

    For the second time in my adult life I am proud on America, the freedom and the stupidity.....
    For the first time I was proud on America when I realize that Obama is not going to be our next President

    Obama says change!!!!!!!!!!! Change what???? How he cheated his way into politics???? Obama has no experience. He applauded Bush's energy we pay $4 for gas and going up. Just like he can't give a good speach about all is solutions for change when in reality he's a preacher waiting for a church!

    Go Hillary! Prove them all wrong!
