Hillary Clinton for President Exploratory Committee: Make Hillary's Next Video

This ad is an interesting development. I believe it is being presented on the web only. However, its rather innovative to ask the public to create advertisements for a campaign.

I encourage you to keep an eye on this campaign and see how YouTube and CNN take advantage of the popularity of internet video to get people involved in the election process.

Video description: "On July 23, Hillary will be participating in a debate sponsored by YouTube and CNN. The candidates have been asked to make a 30-second video which will play some time during the debate.

We want our video to feature you. You know why you support Hillary. You know why this country is ready for change and why Hillary is ready to lead. Tell us why in a video of 30 seconds or less, and you may be featured during the debate.

Vote Different

This was perhaps the very first campaign ad of the new 2008 Presidential election cycle. And, it wasn't even produced by a campaign. Instead, it was created by a man named Phil de Vellis. He says that it is "not the first citizen ad, and it will not be the last. The game has changed."

So, this ad kicks off the election season for me. From time to time, I will be updating this blog with campaign ads from all the candidates that will appear on ballots in Northwest Ohio. I bid happy watching to all of you. And, as always send me an email if I've allowed any ads to go missing.
