New Ads From McCain, Clinton

John McCain has a new ad running in Iowa, "Leads," which opens with a shot of the two Democratic presidential rivals side by side.

"While Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama argue and fight with each other, John McCain leads," an announcer says as the spot opens.

The ad then continues as a positive McCain spot, spotlighting, among other things, his plan for a gas tax holiday. "John McCain: Leadership, not politics," the announcer says as the spot closes. The McCain campaign didn't officially release the spot, which we've embedded via Politico:

Hillary Clinton's campaign also released three new spots today. You can see the two Kentucky spots, "Partner" and "Right Track," here and here. The ad in Oregon, "What's Right," is below. It opens with a shot of pundits discussing the – ahem – horserace nature of political coverage.

"In Washington, they talk about who's up and who's down," an announcer says as the spot opens with shots of TV pundits. "In Oregon, we care about what's right and what's wrong."
