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.

    "...and she's the one who'll end fifty five billion dollars in giveaways to corporate special interests ...."

    What BS... Hillary is one of the Senate's major recipients of lobbyist money from corporate special interests....

    Just like Bush, she'll say anything (remember Bosnia?) and that makes it so....

    And she voted for the war in Iraq! Why not put that into play or how about the only one who suggest ending Obama life in June. Oh What about play the race card.

    Well, one more, at one of her speeches about an eighty plus woman
    African America and did not mention the color of any other people she was relating to.

    Hey Vic in nashville and other HRC supporters.. listen...

    How can she go Independent she's down 20 Million Bucks? That's not going to happen but to those of you who think that HRC is the stronger candidate?

    Let's take a look at her "Leadership" qualities.

    First she agrees to exclude Florida and Michigan(in writing no less), then when the delegate count starts going against her, she switches her position, changes the rules and insists that she has supported counting Florida and Michigan all along.

    This in addition to campaigning in Florida and leaving her name on the Ballot in Michigan when she knew the others had taker theirs off. Second, she "misremembers" being under sniper fire, when her campaign is in need of some sign of a tough leader.

    Third she and her constituents keep bringing up dirt and slanted opinions against her opponent, even though she pledged to run a "clean" campaign. And don't get me wrong, the things she brought up will be used by the GOP.

    So, quick synopsis- Changes rules, Lies, and Back stabs to show she is the "stronger" candidate. Yes, very presidential. Clearly this is not the kind of leader we need!

    United Behind Obama! and let's win this Nov.

    HRC HAS NOT LEARNED ABOUT POINTING FINGERS. TO SPEAK AGAINST THE VERY ONES THAT HER FAMILY HAS MADE FORTUNES FROM WILL COME BACK TO STAB HER IN THE BACK.
    HER HUSBAND'S ACTONS WITH DICTATORS AND DRUG PUSHERS FROM COLUMBIA SA SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. COUNTER TO THE CLINTONITES FEELINGS ABOUT HOW MUCH SHE IS GOING DO TO FOR OUR COUNTRY IS A BUNCH OF HOG WASH.
    COMMON SENSE IS THE JUDGE AND JURY FOR HER ACTIONS. THAT IS WHY SHE HAS TO RE-WRITE THE MATH TO CONVINCE HERSELF OF BEING ON THE WINNING SIDE. THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN -- "NO MORE BILLARYS".

    She's the ONLY ONE who matters – in her own "one-track" mind! :)

    Imagine with me if you please: The GE is over and you hear "Okay, Sweetie, you can let go of the podium now. Christmas is in a week and we want to go home to our families."

    The more this goes on, the more I fear that this exaggerated scenario could actually come true.

    Unity against McCain and the RNC is urgently needed now, not in another two months. Even they are already launching their attack against Obama, as they perceive him as the nominee.

    IF HRC WOULD RUN A AN INDEPENENT SHE WOULD STILL LOSE.

    IF YOU VOTED OBAMA HE WILL LOSE SO YOU YOU ARE HELPING THE RIGHT WING AGENDA!

    IF MCCAIN WINS THE WHITE HOUSE HE WILL HELP TO TILT THE U.S SUPREAM COURT TO THE FAR RIGHT CHANGE YOU CAN COUNT ON!

    Obama played dirty politics in Chicago. So, where is the new politics. Pelosi, Kerry, Carter, Kennedy, Richardson, Dobbs,and Edwards, all dirty politicians for Obama. They sold out the democratic party.

    Pelosi says no to a convention. Look at all the money that can be saved if we just go straight to the GE...Write Hillary Clinton on your ballot in November..

  18. GIVE IT UP!

    I can't think of two more delusional candidates than Hillary and McCain. Hillary, because she still thinks she can win the nomination, and McCain because he still thinks we can win in Iraq.

    It amazes me that a country that prides itself on choices is content every year w/ the same 2. We have 1000 kinds of toothpaste and salad dressing, but 2 political parties.

    If you really want change (real change, and not a platitude), check out one of the 3rd party candidates. Don't be convinced you are wasting your vote. A vote for a Democrat or a Republican is a wasted vote, imho.

    Will women who cared about her early on, be honest enough to tell her the truth. Women need to take back their own projections on her and see this is not doing anyone except the GOP any good. Its over....

    Hillary be a real role model be as courageous and graceful a loser as you would have been if you had won.

    Time to go Hillary.....do it with grace and style.
    You make women cringe at this point.
