new Clinton ad in S.C.

Hillary Clinton's campaign is releasing a 60 second radio ad in South Carolina with Oprah's mentor, and good friend, Maya Angelou.  

In the add, Maya Angelou states:

"Each generation of African Americans stands on the shoulders of those who came before. Today, the challenges facing us threaten the dreams we have had for our children. We need a president with the experience and strength to meet those challenges."

I think Maya Angelou will resonate more with African American women in their 40's and older.  And while either campaign would be stupid to attack either Oprah or Maya, its a lot easier for MSM and newspapers to bring up questionable Oprah tactics (Union issue) than it would be to go after Maya Angelou.

Either way, the Clinton camp isn't ceding the black vote while the Obama camp is trying to get the Clinton women vote.  Things are getting very tight indeed!

OK adding this

I think "stands on the shoulders of those who came before" directly undermines Obama's self-empowered rhetoric. We'll see which message has stronger resonance.

Love it! I agree with souvarine that we will see which one has the stronger resonance.

older, wiser and and all around class act.  Good for her endorsing Clinton.

Re: Maya

She came out in favor of Hillary Clinton 5 months ago.

Yes she is -- I forget who posted a diary about the grandma vote... but I am sure something like this resonates with people of all ages/races/creeds

Clinton has been back up to 38 percent for two days now on Rasmussen which is a little good news- at one point, she had dropped to 33.
