You know Hillary Clinton is getting desperate if she’s putting Osama Bin Laden in a campaign ad. His popularity numbers are probably lower than George Bush’s. (Key word: probably.) From CNN.com’s Political Ticker: “With only one day left until voters in Pennsylvania head to the polls, Hillary Clinton launched a television ad that includes images from the attacks on Pearl Harbor, the Cuban Missile Crisis and Osama Bin Laden.” She’s against all three—an astute political strategy. According to the spot: “Harry Truman said it best. ‘If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,’ ” most likely a reference to Barack Obama’s discomfort with being asked tough questions at a recent debate. Truman also said “the buck stop here.” The New York senator may also have to slam on the brakes if she doesn’t come up big in the Keystone State.
