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.

    Ms Clinton, the foolish far-left democrats have betrayed you including the DNC. Please drop out of this ridiculous party and run as an independent. You will win the Presidency if you do.

    Come on Montana, you can help stop the catastrophy that's in the making. Obama is losing already against McCain in trial heats while Hillary keeps beating McCain and also she wins crucial states such as Florida and Ohio! She can lead us to victory in November and no one else!!!

    And she's the ONLY ONE taking millions from speacial interest groups (while denying it),

    and the ONLY ONE using race and gender to divide the voters,

    and the ONLY ONE who keeps telling lies,

    and the ONLY ONE who can't see that America is fed up with she and her disbarred, lying husband.....

  6. Clinton or McCain

    "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"

    What a great quote, please tell all the Obama supporters.

    Thats a change I can believe in, year right.

    Ed....and anyone else who doesnt get it...

    The energy bill was designed to invest money into technology that will end our dependence on foreign oil. Get a clue bud. Its a step in the right direction and exactly the opposite direction Hillary and the geezer went in.

    I guess Hillary and her coven will not control the White House, so as soon as Hillary leaves the stage, Sen. Obama can now concentrate on defeating Sen. Mc Cain. Coming this November, McCain is about to face his Waterloo!

    To Ed:

    Because Clinton has solved the energy problem, Health care and Social Security problem when her Hubby was president. That's experience we can believe in.

    She can't even run her campaign.... Debt, debt and MORE debt!

    Yeah, what happened to the gas tax relief she was promising for the summer? It was rhetoric just like the many other statements she has made. She should know that the public knows that it was a campaign gimmick because you cannot get anything done without the cooperation of the rest of Congress and the 'Presidont'.

    It's her right to run ads and continue in the race but it appears to be futile. Why throw good money after bad? I know if I were a supporter and it didn't look like she was going to win – she would be on her own financially.

  17. Clinton Arrogance

    I'm surprised she's running adds in 'small' states that 'don't count.' Funny how the tables have turned. I also wonder how many 10 year-old's life savings she's spending to go further in debt? She's in it for Hillary first, not the good of the Party.

    Hillary wants to take on the special interests?

    Everybody, she takes MORE LOBBYISTS MONEY THAN ANYBODY! Obama of course get his money from regular folks. So she's gonna attack herself? Actually she's already doing that.

    Montana & SD, I hope you are smart enough to see through this crazy woman. Peace.

  21. Hillary Dems for McCain

    white middle aged woman for Obama....

    Nancy Pelosi is in hot water right now for campain finance as well. Let's face it. Politics are some times dirty and you can't make everyone happy all the time.

    But you have to admit, George Bush has a lot of people from his administration come out against him. Bill Clinton never had so many come out against him until this election. I think it has something to do with the good ole boy system not wanting a female at the top of the party.

    And Ted Kennedy and others have no right to try and run Hillary out of the race. Ted Kennedy tried to take out an incumbent president (Carter). He and others have no right to say anything, b/c party unity was not an issue to him before.

    The Clintons really scare me now. Their twisted logic and misspoken words betray a desperation to recapture the White House. And I ask "why?" Bill has made $100 million in income since he left the white house.

    Is their greed really so great it supercedes the need of democrats to unite?

    Yes, and the only one who puts herself first over the party, the one who voted for the war in iraq, the one who lied to the american people......
