|Notes: This was the first TV ad promoting a candidate for 2008. Although the buy was tiny, the ad drew considerable media attention (New York Post, AP, New York Times among many others). Coinciding with the running of the ad, HillaryNow.com President Bob Kunst visited New Hampshire to spread the word in person. The ad has lots of sound effects throughout. For example, as Bush keeps popping up among the trash cans on the White House lawn he makes annoying sniggering sounds.|
