Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's new North Carolina spot has this understatement: "This isn't a typical election, and these are not typical times."

(Lynn Sweet in Chicago)

NC Ask Me”

TV :60

Hillary Clinton:

“Hi, if you are looking for a typical political commercial, switch the channel.

This isn't a typical election, and these are not typical times.

The economy is reeling and as I talk with people across North Carolina,

I hear about the crushing cost of healthcare from Winston-Salem to Fayetteville.

I hear stories about families going into debt to send their children to college.

Military families from Fort Bragg tell me their deep concerns about how we're treating our veterans.

Teachers and parents tell me that No Child Left Behind just isn't working.

And everywhere, North Carolinians tell me the middle class is just getting slammed.

I want to hear from you.

Because this election isn't about me, it is about you.

So let's have a conversation.

Just go to NCAskMe.com, and then I'll be getting back to you here on TV to answer your questions and offer some solutions.

Thanks.

It's nice talking with you.

I'm Hillary Clinton and I approve this message.”

IT SURE ISN'T A TYPICAL ELECTION, YOU'RE GETTING YOUR BUTT
WHIPPED. PAY YOUR BILLS AND SHOW YOUR TAX STATEMENTS!
DEFEAT IS HARD TO SWALLOW, SO CHEW ALL YOUR FOOD!
28 YEARS OF BUSH/CLINTON IS OVER!
YOU DIDN'T KNOW WHAT OBAMA WAS CAPABLE OF, HE'S A WINNER,AND
YOU'RE NOT!
HEY HILLARY HAVE YOU LOST A SUPERDELEGATE TODAY!

Phil--right down to the shouting to the image of abuse both mental and physical---you sound like an abusive parent wanting to punish the 'uppity woman'. Speaking of which--when the dickens is Obama or Axelrod or both going to apologize to Geraldine Ferraro?
also--the company the Obama movement is keeping sure seems to be Republican--watch the last of this interview where Geraldine says calls (20) from Texas are doing a McCarthyistic pushe against her continued employment.
And randi rhodes is a jerk who reminds me of the stupid weathermen movement that ruined the anti vietnam war movement begun by that war's veterans. Thanks for nothing, radical lefties.

GLAD TO SEE YOU AND BILL HAVE BEEN MAKING OUT LIKE BANDITS THE
LAST SEVEN YEARS! NO WONDER YOU HAVE BEEN LOANING MONEY TO YOUR
CAMPAIGN, YOU GUYS ARE ROLLING IN DOE!
P.S. STOP TELLING FALSE STORIES WHEN YOU'RE OUT CAMPAIGNING, THE
CHICKENS DO COME HOME TO ROOST!

APOLOGIZE TO FERRARO, THAT'S LIKE SAYING THE MASTER WAS GOOD TO
THE SLAVES! PLEASE!
FERRARO WAS IN LINE TO RECEIVE A CABINET SEAT, AND SHE HAD A RACIST SLIP OF THE TONGUE, SHE PLAYED LIKE SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT
SHE HAD DONE, ONE THING ABOUT AN ELECTION LIKE THIS, RACISM COMES
TO LIFE AND THOSE WHO SAY THEY AIN'T, ARE!
IT'S REALLY SAD THAT IN A COUNTRY AS GREAT AS AMERICA, THERE IS
A GHETTO IN EVERY CITY, WHILE FAT CATS ARE LIVING LARGE, THAT'S
WHY HILLARY HAD TO CUT HER CHIEF STRATEGIST LOOSE, HE WAS OUT
DOING THE MASTER'S BIDDING AND THEY BOTH GOT CAUGHT!
SHE IS THE ONE THAT ISN'T ELECTABLE, BECAUSE SHE IS IN BED WITH
TOO MANY PEOPLE!
GOTTA GO NOW, SNIPER FIRE OVERHEAD!
