Hillary will try to focus her strategy in a state where Obama is outspending her 4:1 with five new ads. 3 to the rich Philly market & others quite rural & traditional. "...she's got what it takes to revitalize economy, create jobs, cut taxes."

From article:

from Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and the other from Michael Nutter, Philadelphia's newly installed black mayor. The third is a Spanish-language ad aimed at the city's Latino community.

Another ad, airing in Scranton, lets Clinton highlight her roots in the region her father was raised there and, as a girl, Clinton and her family spent summers in a cottage on Lake Winola west of Scranton.

"There was no heat, or indoor shower just the joy of family," Clinton says in the ad, though heat would hardly be necessary in August. "I was raised on pinochle and the American dream. I still have faith in that dream. It's just been neglected a little."

The fifth ad, airing in central and western Pennsylvania, is an economic message with a populist twist.

"The oil companies, the predatory student loan companies, the insurance companies and the drug companies, have had seven years of a president who stands up for them," Clinton says. "I intend to be a president who stands up for all of you."

Noted. Clinton has more strength, leadership capablities, and experience than Obama. She does not have too much testosterone, and that is Very good. Obama would certainly be a better president than McC. though not nearly as good as Clinton. The American Dream is changing as we breathe. Clinton is the best possible Candidate for President to see the U.S. and all who depend on the First of the First World Countries through the inevitable changes. I will stick to my belief no matter how many of the Good Old Boys natter/nag at me and try to terrorize the world.
