National Democrats are out with a new ad spotlighting some of the president's accomplishments during the first 100 days of his administration.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – The Democratic National Committee launching a new television ad in anticipation of President Obama's 100th day in office.

The new ad, titled "Foundation for Change," focuses on some of Obama's legislative accomplishments during his young administration and highlights the president's three primary domestic policy agenda items – energy, health care, and education.

The 60-second spot spotlights the passage of Obama's $787 stimulus bill along with legislation that expanded funding for children's health insurance and a bill that made it easier to sue for pay discrimination.

The ad also features footage from Obama's address to a joint session of Congress soon after his swearing-in, where he laid out his ambitious domestic policy agenda, and made the case for pursuing it even as the country struggled to jumpstart a deeply recessionary economy. The ad calls Obama's domestic agenda "a bold plan for the future."

"Foundation for Change" will air on cable Tuesday and Wednesday nationally and in the Washington, D.C. area, according to the DNC.

Wednesday will mark Obama's 100th day in office. The president is scheduled to hold a primetime press conference on that day.

    President Obama I would like to say thank you for working so hard to fix this country under such extraordinary circumstances. I know now that you are the right man for the job. There is a divine plan at work here. And it's bringing out all the hate that is still so latent in this country so that it can be wiped out.

    I thinks this is wonderful and so well-deserved..President Obama has gone above and beyond the call of duty..He has been non stop since he took office 100 days ago, and still keeps going..Any one can tell he very much dedicated to his job, and is really concerned about the country..Although he has alot on his plate, he never lets that distract hime from his duties one bit..He is truly the hardest working man in the White House and just keeps going and going and going..We are so fortunate to have Pres Obama and get ready for Obamaism !! Congratulations Pres Obama on a job very well done !

    Let me count the 100 ways the Republican Party has failed and I'll give you 100 ways Obama is cleaning up behind their failure. Forget about the 100 days, just think about it.

    Sad this is what America "needs" along side of President Obama doing more for this country, in less than 100-days, then the GOP did the entire 6-years they were in the majority.
