You’ve seen Hillary’s 3 AM ad from the primaries, right? One of the most memorable and effective ads of the entire election.
Now we see that McCain has recycled the ad, because, well, when Hillary’s right, she’s right. And she makes a great case against Obama and for McCain.
Now, we don’t want to say that the Obama campaign is flat-footed…but their response starts off with this:
If John McCain wants to quote Hillary Clinton's 3 AM ads, he should go right ahead
Apparently the point of their response was to point out that Hillary’s follow-up 3 AM ad castigated McCain on the economy.
So not only does Team Obama explicitly bless McCain’s use of the ad; they make no effort whatsoever to refute the claims in the ad.
Thanks Team Obama!
