Valerie Plame, husband appear in new Clinton ad

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Ambassador Joe Wilson and wife, Valerie Plame, appear in new Clinton ad"]

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Hillary Clinton's campaign released a new ad in Oregon Friday, featuring two familiar faces: Ambassador Joe Wilson and his wife, Valerie Plame, who was the undercover operative in the highly publicized CIA leak case.

In the ad, they say Clinton has the "strongest plan to end the Iraq War and bring our troops home safely," according to the campaign.

The 30-second ad, dubbed "Strongest Plan," comes as Oregonians vote by mail in advance of the state's May 20 primary.

The Clinton campaign says the Wilsons played a "critical role in drawing attention to the Bush Administration's exaggerated claims about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and have been outspoken critics of the conduct of the war."

Watch the ad here.

    I believe Obama's plans are more pragmatic and have the best chance of moving forward. I also believe Oregonians are smart enough to see through Clinton's deceptions.

    Wow! Let's get HRC out to run as an independent to help bring down Barack. Then, let's all go out and buy the glue we will need to paste our noses back on our faces!

    Despite the fact that ANYONE who is capable of counting [delegates, popular vote, contests won, super delegates] can see she is out of it FAIR and SQUARE.

    TIme to heal the wounds and unite! We do not need to cut off our noses to spite our face.

    Yes, there will be many who will never vote for a black man, many of which would leave the Christian faith if they found out Christ was black or Jewish.

    Hillary voted for that war!!!

    Actually Hillary was NAIVE by voting in agreement with Bush on the Iran vote just months ago!!!

    Hillary, why don't you put up an ad that shows how you were 100% for the war and tell people that you didn't even read the documents before voting!

    Obama was NOT EVEN IN THE US SENATE when Bush, Cheney, Colin Powell and others presented false intelligence and conned the strong majority of Congress into voting their support for action against Iraq. Obama was still an Illinois Senator, SKIPPING HIS DUTY TO VOTE ON OVER 100 ISSUES! He can say all day long that he was against the war, but the fact is he was not in the room looking at the overwhelming propaganda Bush was pushing. He is very clever talking like a back-seat driver criticizing everyone else for something he was not even involved in! Typical elitist ploy. He simply is NOT experienced enough or trustworthy enough to lead this country. Get real people and quit buying his rhetoric before it's too late.

    I have never been to Oregon, but have read some about it's people. The free thinking of Sen. Wayne Morse tells me something about Oregonians. I was in the military during the 60,s, and it says alot to have been one of two US Senators to oppose the Tonkin Gulf Resolution. I think the people of Oregon can tell the wheat from the chaff. Obama...08

    I don't understand where the money is coming from to pay for all the ads, commercials, travel and everything if Clinton is broke. Is she spending money she does not have to try to defeat Obama knowing she will force him to pay off her debts in return for her support?
    I hope there are not a bunch of small business folks that go broke because Hillary is spending money she does not have.
    It is time to unite and stop bickering and name calling.

    I consider myself one of the feminists, not a female chauvnist! According to my definition of feminism, women are equal to men as human beings, not superior and not inferior. Thus, Hillary and Obama started equal in my heart and I voted for Hillary on super Tuesday because I will always vote to a woman if she is equal /almost equal to the male contender. However, the contender in this case, Obama, is just so much better that he won my heart. Now, if I don't believe that Hillary is superior to Obama just because she is a woman, then I should certainly support the person who I consider as far better. That's exactly what most feminists are doing!

    Now, some feminists are blinded by the huge amount of discrimination either they had to face in life or they saw other women facing in life. My claim is validated by the comparison of the voting record of older women, who have seen a lot more gender discrimination, and younger women, who fortunately got a little fairer life!
