Sleeping girl in Hillary’s ad supports Obama

3am While we’re on the subject of Obama ads, it turns out that one of the sleeping girls featured in Hillary Clinton’s “3 a.m.” ad is an Obama supporter. Oops! To be fair, the stock footage in the ad was shot nine years ago, when Casey Knowles was 8 years old. (The Clinton campaign bought the footage from Getty Images.) But Knowles, now 17, has been campaigning for Obama, and denounces the “3 a.m.” spot as an exercise in “fear-mongering.” The Obama camp has been in touch with Knowles, and they’ve been having a laugh or two. “I mentioned that we should make a counter ad, me and Obama, against Hillary,” she says. “They thought that was really funny. They actually might take me up on it.”
