McCain’s Camp Gives Hillary’s “3 a.m.” Ad A Thumbs Up

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Hillary, I Told You So, McCain, Media

First, the quote from one of McCain’s advisers…

“Please keep running those 3:00 A.M. ads about who you want to answer the phone, because we like those.”

Then the take from Foreign Policy:

That’s how Randy Scheunemann, who is overseeing foreign policy issues for John McCain’s campaign, just summed up the obvious in a Council on Foreign Relations event here in Washington. [...]

In other words, the more Clinton and Obama keep talking about how inexperienced the other is, the more it sticks for both.

Obama and Hillary may have raised over $90M last month, but that doesn’t mean ANYTHING to security moms.

Dems, take note.

Ha! Rasmussen actually did a poll about it!

The commercial was credited as one factor enabling Clinton to turn her campaign around in Texas last week. But, 42% of all voters said the person they’d most want to answer the phone was John McCain. Among all voters, 25% picked Clinton and another 25% named Obama as the person they’d want in the White House when a foreign policy crisis call arrived.

Among Democrats, 46% said they’d like Clinton to take that call while 36% named Obama.

Among Republicans, 79% named McCain while neither Democrat reached double digits.

Thanks Hillary!

    Jon Stewart noted that the phone in Hillary’s “3 am” commercial rang 7 times, which seemed a long time. He wondered why the phone wasn’t picked up a bit quicker.

    Well, you got to get up, go to the next room, shoo out the floozy, wake up the guy with the experience and get him to answer the phone.

    That takes time.
