Video: Obama’s new health care ad

Worth flagging for one reason and one reason only — the brief shot of a photo of young Barry with his mother. McCain’s Vietnam ad featured his mother too to emphasize his longevity, but thanks to Jesse Jackson there’s some political risk to Obama in reminding voters what race his mother was. There’s also some political benefit, of course, although if the polls are right then it’s thankfully negligible. Good for him for not letting “authenticity” demagogues like Jackson and Sharpton cow him into dissembling.
