Hillary Clinton's pro-forma denunciation of John McCain's ad.

We finally got a response from Hillary’s people to this McCain ad:

…and it’s certainly, um, well, a statement.

The following is a statement released today by Hillary Clinton’s Spokeswoman Kathleen Strand in response to the McCain campaign’s new ad “Passed Over.”

“Hillary Clinton’s support of Barack Obama is clear. She has said repeatedly that Barack Obama and she share a commitment to changing the direction of the country, getting us out of Iraq, and expanding access to health care. John McCain doesn’t. It’s interesting how those remarks didn’t make it into his ad.”

I believe that the word to use here would be “tepid.” Even after you subtract out my, McCain’s, and the entire VRWC’s natural inclinations to be gleeful troublemakers, the word to use here would still be “tepid.” We were expecting something with, you know, some bite to it. I mean, look at it: there isn’t even a direct attack on McCain! She just called the ad incomplete. Not even inaccurate: incomplete.

Disappointing, really.
