It's Experience, Stupid

Hillary Clinton has a new ad out that is clearly aimed at the Soccer Moms, stressing that she has the experience to meet global crises and not (by implication) Barack Obama.

Check it out:

The problem with this ad, I think, is if you really want experience, then John McCain is your man. I just don't find it effective.

Furthermore, given that this ad appears to be geared to mothers, that suggests bigger problems for Hillary. It indicates to this political observer that she's worried about her base. And if she's worried about her base, it will be a long day next Tuesday.

I'll post again soon on the question of experience and the presidency.
