After the Debate: Part 1, the Video
By Miryam Ehrlich Williamson
There’s much to be said about last night’s debate. The sense I’m getting from newspapers and blogs — not all of them usually favorable to Obama — is that he came across as more presidential and level-headed, that McCain — who never once in 90 minutes, after a perfunctory handshake, looked at Obama — seemed grumpy, defensive, and rude.
This ad , titled “Zero,” will start running on Monday on cable stations viewed across the U.S. The script is below.
White text on black background and voice over: Number of minutes in debate: 90
Number of times John McCain mentioned the middle class: Zero
McCain doesn’t get it.
Barack Obama does.
Video of Barack from Friday night’s debate: The fundamentals of the economy have to be measured by whether or not the middle class is getting a fair shake…
And when you look at your tax policies…you are neglecting people who are really struggling right now. I think that is a continuation of the last eight years, and we can’t afford another four.

Text on black background: For the change we need
Barack voice: I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message.
