Honestly, everytime you think things can’t get worse for Republicans….well, read the press release from the DSCC to fully understand the idiocy behind what Dole did (and then try not to laugh–I dare you!)

In this ad Obama accomplishes two things: 1) His national security/foreign policy bona fides, by pointing out his work to track down loose nukes = preventing nuclear terrorism and 2) That he can work across party lines, showcasing his work with Republican Senator Dick Lugar–a respected foreign policy elder statesman–on this issue (and from Indiana–a state that Obama happens to be targeting to turn from red to blue this election).

This is more of McCain’s attempt to split the difference on issues and declare himself a moderate, bipartisan kind of chap.

There is no secret about who The Clinton Campaign is trying to appeal to with this ad. Wilson and Plame are beloved figures in the netroots, and the Clinton Campaign hopes to win over some younger, anti-war voters with this ad to balance out their generally older, blue-collar coalition. It is win-win for them, as they can claim they won a broader swath of the electorate in states where they are
