Hillary Clinton’s new Ohio ad:
Don't go dissing the Rose Firm!
Putting in 2200 billable hours per year for your corporate overlords while rainmaking and sitting in on library committee meetings too is a real sacrifice!
Has she ever actually worked a night shift or is she counting staying late at the office? Seems like this might backfire if it's the later.
Wellesley grads don't work the night shift.
The idea is that she stays up late trying to solve problems for America's families. Duh, people.
Not terribly clever, but certainly easy to figure out.
are you sure, johnnie? i thought she was referring to all those years she spent as a night hostess at denny's.
So Hillary is working the night shift...
Obama is lifting speeches
Do we start looking at Cynthia Mckinney
Don't worry Hillary, I love you enough to make up for all of the haters out there (unless you count the delegates).
I was assuming it was the second job she took as a Wal-Mart greeter to make ends meet while Bill was just getting himself established as President of the Fucking United States.
Wow, a night shift.
I used to work 12 hour shifts, sometimes 10 days in a row, smelting alloys and operating heavy machinery.
I so feel for her ... not.
She looks like she's about to rip that little girls arm off.
FYI, I live in Ohio (Columbus) and I have yet to see this ad--whereas there's an Obama ad in very heavy rotation.
Well I guess she had to keep busy while Bill had all those constituent sleepovers to attend.
Napolean, it's an easy enough mistake to make, but Hillary's thankless job at Wal-Mart wasn't as a greeter, it was as a board member.
Anyway, I find this commercial quite inspiring. I also love those Chevron and ExxonMobil commercials about how they're working so hard, and so selflessly, to solve this world's energy problems.
Maybe they would not need two jobs if her husband did not push through NAFTA....
Oh I KNOW Hillary did not sign it blah blah blah... But if she is going to claim that "35 years of experience and making change" she better start hugging those changes.
That and her vote for the bankruptcy reform act thinking if would not pass....because we all know the way you make sure legistlation does not pass is by voting for it....
Come to think of it, they probably have to work two jobs for that little bill as well.
Obama basically says he and Deval share speaking points and had been given permission to use the lines, and he regrets not giving credit.
@10: Really, Will? Is there anything you haven't done? Why don't you tell us about that time you climbed K2? Or the time that you paddled down the Amazon discovering new plants? Or how about that time you took a bus down to Alabama to register black voters? Maybe you could share some stories about your work in the space program?
"Nightshift" by the Commodores is such a great song. Gonna be a long night, gonna be alllllllright...
over worked, underpaid because they are undereducated and can't get better jobs.
the catty bitches here need to get a grip
I do not remember reading that Hillary came from great family wealth or patrician lineage
did I miss the heiress/gold spoon story?
for many of you, the NEW America will mandate an attitude change
I come from an very working class family where everybody worked thier asses off at jobs like cab driver, cleaning stores, farm labor, nursing home care, waitress at not fancy place, cook, teachers, music --- this ad is directed to those, "what a drag people" ---- and by the way, many were/are overeducated and under employed
overeducated and underemployed is code for idealistic liberal arts majors
Oh, I thought it meant CEOs.
Ah, Mr. Poe, you just WoW me sometimes ...
FYI - I received this email the other day from Barack Obama's Meetup people... looks like they are actively mobilizing people to vote today.

subject [barackobama-133] Please Vote on Tuesday
Even though we know the vote on Tuesday won't count towards selecting our
nominee for the Presidency - we have already picked Obama by 68% at the
caucuses, please send your absentee ballot or show up to vote on Tuesday!!
The other side will try to make an issue of this vote, just like they are
doing with Michigan and Florida, so don't give them any reason to.
Funny, I keep working these all these night shifts too and I don't seem to be able to loan myself five million bucks at the drop of a hat?
You're obviously not working them hard enough.
Go back to France, you slacker!

I was a steelworker (Local 480 USWA) for a few years, originally doing Electronics, then water pumps, then smelting alloys. In Trail BC where Tek Cominco is.
Just because you haven't had an interesting life, don't assume others haven't.
Never been to Asia, haven't climbed K-2 (but in the military I built airports, roads, and bridges in various mountain chains in Canada and the US), lived in racially mixed areas in Texas and when I was little we had black friends stay at our place (I was a kid, tho) in Pennsylvania (my family performed in folk festivals, my dad still does English Longsword dancing nowadays). Haven't worked in the space program.
What's your damage? Maybe you don't do six improbable things before brunch, but that's normal in my family.
All of Hilary's games the past couple of weeks has completely turned me against her. I voted for Obama and am a big Obama supporter however, I thought if he didn't win, I would still vote for Hillary in the general election. After her desperate remarks towards Obama the past two weeks, I'll refuse to vote for her in the general election. If it comes down to it, I would rather be a part of that statistic that stays home, than vote for another "same as the rest" politian that she is turning into. I'm sick and tired of her games.
oh, and I've never been south of Mexico, unless you count the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe, and such. so I can't have been on the Amazon ... wish I could someday.
But did you ever shoot a man in Reno, just to watch him die?
Sammy @ 20: From Wikipedia, it appears that Hillary Clinton had a comfortable upper middle class upbringing. She went to one of the most exclusive (and expensive) colleges in America, and after graduating from law school, joined a corporate law firm and for six years was on the Board of Directors of Wal-Mart, one of the most anti-union corporations in the country. It doesn't appear likely that she has actually worked many night shifts.
"After the war, [Hillary's father Hugh Rodham] began what was to prove to be a very successful career in the textile supply industry, starting with Rodrik Fabrics, a drapery fabric business located in Chicago's famous Merchandise Mart building. He later opened a fabric print plant building on the North Side.
The Rodhams had three children: Hillary (born 1947), Hugh (born 1950), and Tony (born 1954). In 1950, they moved to the more affluent Chicago suburb of Park Ridge, Illinois. The family still maintained ties to Scranton; all three children were christened there, and they spent summers at a cottage overlooking Lake Winola located in Overfield Township, Pennsylvania in the nearby Pocono Mountains.
Rodham was a staunch supporter of Barry Goldwater’s 1964 presidential campaign and remained a committed Republican until his death. Even after his daughter married Democrat Bill Clinton, he (according to Bill Clinton) 'never gave up hope that his son-in-law would join him in the Republican Party and support a cut in the capital gains tax.'"
You nailed it!!
