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?
