This is pretty amazing, and very effective, I think. It’s increasingly apparent that the Great Divide in 2008 isn’t black v. white, or male v. female, but young v. old.

By the way, I could put together a reel of Obama sound bites that sounds every bit as trite as Hillary in this guerrilla mashup. But I wouldn’t have the skills or sensibility to do it this way; very few in my generation would. I disagreed–quietly, in a loyal and seemly fashion–with Time’s Person of the Year last December. But ads like this one, which will have an impact on this campaign, indicate that I was wrong. You are, apparently, not only the Person of the Year, but also the Political Consultants of the future. Wonder how Hillary’s paid help will respond.
