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.
