Dueling Negative Ads From RNC and DNC

The Republican and Democratic National Committees both released ads today attacking the opposition party's presidential candidate.

Picking up on a theme the McCain campaign has been pushing in its ads in recent days, the RNC uses Hillary Clinton in its effort.

"Who has the experience to govern our nation?," an announcer asks as the spot opens. It then cuts to Clinton complimenting McCain and suggesting that Obama brings less to the table than herself or the Arizona Republican.

"Senator McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, I will bring a lifetime of experience and Senator Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002," Clinton is shown saying.

The announcer then chimes in again.

"Barack Obama – he give a great speech, but now Americans must ask ourselves, 'Should we elect the most inexperienced presidential candidate of our times – or was she right?'"

The RNC plans to spend between 2 and 2.5 million running it in major markets in Colorado, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and western Pennsylvania.

The Democratic National Committee, meanwhile, has released a new Web spot, "Totally in Agreement," that shows McCain talking about his agreement with President George W. Bush on many issues.

The final clip comes from a McCain appearance on "Meet The Press" in 2005; McCain says, "The fact is that I have agreed with President Bush far more than I have disagreed, and on the transcendent issues, the most important issues of our day, I have been totally in agreement and support of President Bush."

The spot concludes with the words "More Of The Same."
