New Obama Ad in Texas: "Ringing"

Days Until Bush Leaves Office = 324

Barack Obama has a new ad up in Texas. The 30-second spot, titled "Ringing," is a direct rebuttal to the Clinton campaign's "Children" ad released yesterday.

Here's the video:

On the substance of the ad, the same comments apply here that I made yesterday regarding Clinton's ad - no new tale to tell.

But in terms of campaign agility and response time, this ad is pretty impressive: same imagery, same narrative style, and pushing the Clinton ad's point directly back upon itself, and all done in less than a day. If the last 24 hours is any indication, Barack Obama is going to be pretty tough to swiftboat, from either side of the aisle.
