I like the ad. It's memorable and subtlely conveys a pro-military message whilst it also subtlely highlights her health care, day care, family leave act expansion message. Also, and not unimportantly, her voice is great in it. If she can maintain the sound of her voice when she says at the end, "I'm Hillary Clinton and I approved this message", she'll do fine.
I'm still an Edwards man, as I want UHC by the end of a first term, not on a wing-and-a-prayer end of a lameduck second term. However, HRC is my second choice. I'll just admit it: all things being equal, I'd pick the woman because I want a woman president in my lifetime. And that ad, though very subtle, highlights Hillary's "womanness". And that is what separates her from the rest and makes this ad even more memorable. I'd give the ad an "A" for a first time out.
