Clinton up with new ad starring Easley

Easley stars in a new campaign ad for Clinton.

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton's campaign launched a new ad in North Carolina Thursday that features the state's governor, Mike Easley.

Easley, who endorsed Clinton earlier this week, says the New York senator is "so resilient, so determined."

"These are tough times in America and I think that Hillary is the one we can count on to get the job done," Easley also says in the 30-second spot, titled "Determined."

The ad comes five days before the state's May 6 primary. Barack Obama is considered the favorite, though recent polls suggest Clinton is gaining support.

Full script after the jump

"Determined"

TV :30

Gov. Easley: These are tough times in America and I think that Hillary is the one we can count on to get the job done.

She's going to turn the economy around, she's going bring new jobs, she's going to get some tax cuts for the middle class for a change.

She's going to make health care available to everybody in this country, and she's going to do everything she can to help every child reach their full potential.

She is so resilient, so determined.

She knows how to deliver.

She'll be a great president.

Hillary Clinton: I'm Hillary Clinton and I approved this message.

    One wondew he couuld be so out of touch with his constituents?? It is my strong sense Obama will win in North Carolina. I say that with some qualifications. That is if Hillary or Bill don't pull yet another dirty trick out of thier soiled hat..
    Of course many are now truly seeing the Clintons for what they are. The "Judgment at the White House in 98-99 " will be replayed again and again if , perchance, HIllary should steal the nomination from Obama!

    I am so tired of this primary. This country is going to be in big trouble if Obama is the nominee. I hate the thought of McCain as President. The majority of Republicains and Independents who voted for Obama, will vote for McCain in November. We will lose in November. The Wright, Rezko,Exlon and so on will be played to death in November. Obama lies and plays the race card at every turn. Well, it will turn on him in November. The Obamas might win the battle, they will not win the war.

    Hillary is going to win in Indiana and N. Carolina.

    I really felt Obama disowned Wright, but when I saw Michelle and was
    asked the Question, she would not answer and would not say she
    disowned Wright. There is much more to this story that is yet to
    be told.

    BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY = MARXISM!

    That's what Obama stands for. A lot of you are so jaded with Obama you don't even know the man, you're easily seduced by his beguiling words. Who is Cone? According to Cone if God is not in line with the black people, then the blacks must kill all followers of God. Even Pope John Paul condemns what Cone had stated, Obama is a follower of Cone's teaching thru his SPIRITUAL MENTOR REVEREND JEREMIAH WRIGHT. How many times Wright, spiritual mentor of Obama mentioned Cone?

    A recent poll has her ahead. If she wins NC, even if by one vote, it will be a monumental upset, and the beginning of the end of the Obama experiment.

    CNN needs to report the news out today that Hillary has lied again. She, evidently, yesterday in Indiana reported GW was responsible for losing jobs to China, when, in fact, it was her HUSBAND who was responsible.......her nose keeps growing.

    Also what about the letter from Iran to the UN regarding her irresponsible speech which threatened to obliterate them etc. She sounds like GW, is this what we want as President of the US?

    Really? I guess we should start hearing from all the Clintonistas saying that this guy should pledge for whomever his constituents vote for. That is what they always say when the shoe is on the other foot. But now... silence.

    All politics as usual from the Clinton crowd. What is it that you are all so afraid of... a little change? have HOPE not despair.

    Someone needs to ask Obama where his wife's thesis is? Princeton pulled it off the shelf until after the election in November. Maybe it is round 3 of Rev. Wright.

    Stupid move for him to run to Obama, he will never get the support of Hillary backers and cannot win against McCain. The only reason these supers support him is because they don't want to pay their fair share of taxes. THey know Obama will never do what he says, never has. They know Hillary will balance the books again like she has done in the 90s. When has obama ever balanced a budget to make money for any of us? Never.

    OBAMA CAN'T BEAT MCCAIN

    HILLARY PRESIDENT 2008 !!! ALL THE WAY HOME !!!

    One other thing, you so called educated Obama-bots are too stupid to realize NC has term limits for the Governor. Gov. Easley isn't going to need your vote next time. I just love the so called intelligent Obama-bots.LMAO

    These petulent children degrade anyone who has the audacity to not fall into lockstep with Obama. I sincerely worry about the future of this party sometimes.

    How is Hillary paying for this add? Has she paid all the small businesses who did work on her campaign yet?

  22. Typical White Person

    "Is she reilient or power hungry, devious, delusional, and phoney?"...every last one of those applies to Obama.

    hillary is really closing the poll gap in NC. hopefully she will win both indiana, and NC, so obama drops out. he is a devisive figure, who is tearing the democratic party apart. hillary offers solutions, not empty rhetoric. hillary08!

    Yes, vote for Obama and his crazy preacher friend. That is just what we need. I feel sorry that the preacher man made such a fool of Obama and himself, but not sorry enough to vote for him. Keep that kind of stuff out of politics.
