McCain pitches to the Hillary crowd

Here is the new McCain ad:

Some people may think that it is smart of McCain to make a play for disgruntled Hillary voters. It is, but not this way. Reminding the conservative base that anyone who thinks that Hillary Clinton would have made a good president will also probably think that John McCain will make a good president is not a good idea.

The way to play to angry Hillary supporters is to use surrogates to keep reminding everyone just how shabbily the Democrats treated Hillary. That way you motivate the feminists to vote against Obama while not drawing unnecessary attention to the fact that a McCain presidency would be like a third term for Bill Clinton, only without the sexual perversions.
