McCain's ad guy won't attack Obama

I don't think I've seen anything like this.

Mark MacKinnon, who designs Mr McCain's advertisements, said he could not face being part of a campaign that "would inevitably be attacking" Mr Obama.

"I have met Barack Obama. I have read his book. I like him a great deal. I disagree with him on very fundamental issues but it would be uncomfortable for me and it would be bad for the McCain campaign," he told National Public Radio.

Obama Advertising Nationally

I was just watching MSNBC, and I saw a Barack Obama for President advertisment.  Not so weird, I guess, but I live in the forbidden state of Michigan. Gasp!

Now, the 12:40 time slot is not an expensive one.  But it is interesting to note that Obama is reaching people not only in Super Tuesday states but beyond.  This is one way that Bush won in '04: he reached Republicans in Hawaii while Kerry forgot about the blue and red states, focusing solely on the 'swing' states'.

Also, I wonder what kind of cut Axelrod is getting off of ads like these.  The fact that Axelrod is taking in a commission makes me think that I may be seeing a few more Obama '08 ads...

Have you seen any Hillary or Edwards ads nationwide?

Obama's New Ad in Iowa

Obama has a new bio TV ad out in Iowa.  It adds another chapter to the narrative laid out in the first two ads, following Obama's efforts on ethics legislation in Washington.

For one, it's interesting that Obama has the resources this early in the campaign to carry his message consistently both in his advertising and in the speeches he's given this week in Iowa.

The ad combines some breathtaking pictures from his announcement speech, finishing with a quirky swirl effect on his logo at the end of the ad.  All in all, the ad has a very positive, upbeat feel to it.
