Security ads

Well, this could be a first in American political history: Obama says Clinton ad scares voters
Democrat Barack Obama accused rival Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday of trying to "play on people's fears to scare up votes" with a television ad showing sleeping children and asking who would be more qualified to answer a national security emergency call at 3 a.m.

Gosh, attempting to scare the voters? Unheard of!

Lyndon Johnson, 1964 - Daisy

Other candidates have made similar arguments a little more subtly...

Ronald Reagan, 1984 - The Bear

or humorously.

George H. W. Bush, 1988 - Dukakis in the Tank

Of course, none of those other candidates were St. Barack, the anointed, so Senator Clinton may not actually be able to get away with it...

UPDATE: Senator Clinton's ad

I'd love to hear the Obama campaign whine about this some more, because this is such a ridiculously modest "attack" that complaining about it makes him look silly.
