    Hillary Ad Darkened Obama?

    [QUOTE]A controversial new Hillary Clinton attack ad is causing an Internet stir among critics who claim it deliberately darkens Barack Obama’s skin color.[/QUOTE]

    Sure looks like it to me. So stupid if true, the backlash would be much worse than anything they could possibly gain. Ask Time Magazine from when they did it to OJ.

    If true, incredibly stupid.

    In the unlikely event she somehow pulls out the nomination, does her campaign (I'm assuming she didn't know about this) honestly think black voters are going to turn out for her in the general after pulling BS like this?

    He's not [I]that [/I]black, and his middle name is the name that should not be spoken.

    Got it.

    Oh yeah, and his wife didn't only recently become proud of her county, even though she said twice that she only recently became proud of her country.

    Up is down. In is out. Right is left. Now [I]that's[/I] change you can believe in, baby!

    That was a VERY subtle color difference. You'd see that much difference between TV sets at your local Best Buy.


    Obama should strike back and make her look more haggish, if that's even possible.

    Well, SanAntonio_JetFan, any more and it would be completely obvious that they were messing with his skin color to make him appear blacker.

    Not saying it's true that it was done intentionally, but nothing would suprise me.

    Ok this is ridiculous. It is common practice in television ads to cast aspersion about the other candidates by placing them in dark light during the ad to connotate an image of "badness" or "evil". This stuff is standard political fare and to brand it in this way is a reach at best.

    Brazile: Howard Dean And Other Party Leaders Should Be Prepared To Step In By Greg Sargent - March 5, 2008, 9:22AM

    Despite Hillary's big wins in Ohio and Texas last night, some super-delegates are already suggesting that a continued contest risks damaging the party and are calling on Howard Dean and other party leaders to be ready to intervene should the race get dirtier:

    "Despite Obama's impressive victories in February, Clinton's comeback is based on sowing political seeds of doubt," said Donna Brazile, a Democratic strategist and one of nearly 800 party leaders known as superdelegates for their ability to determine the nomination. "In order to clinch the nomination, he must anticipate the worst attacks ever."...

    Some superdelegates are bracing themselves to intervene on Obama's behalf if necessary.

    "If these attacks are contrasts based on policy differences, there is no need to stop the race or halt the debate," Brazile said. "But, if this is more division, more diversion from the issues and more of the same politics of personal destruction, chairman Dean and other should be on standby."

    Consider that a harbinger of what we're likely to hear from other super-delegates if the race gets uglier without significantly altering the underlying pledged-delegate imbalance between the two candidates.

    I don't know why you guys are all on Obama, do you really think the She Devil would be easier to face in the GE?

    Not a reader of DailyKos, but this evidence is pretty damning..

    Now we just need AL Sharpton to get a hold of this: (view the link for photo graphic images) They also squished the face, hypothetically in an attempt to make his nose look more black

    Why would a "darkened Obama" or a "more black" Obama be considered more sinister? Skin tone doesn't matter to me. Must be a Democrat thing.

    Yes. Don't forget, her husband was the first black president.

    What a world!

    Let's see an Obama ad that gives Hilary more wrinkles and makes McCain whiter. :D
