Hillary Clinton Needs Melatonin (And Better Ad People)


Hillary Clinton is still taking those phone calls at 3:00 a.m. It is rare enough for there to be an international crisis which results in a 3:00 a.m. call to the White House. Why would they call about a mortgage crisis at 3:00 a.m. and why is Hillary Clinton all dressed and waiting for the call? Perhaps she is waiting up for Bill. Maybe some Melatonin will help get her sleep cycles back to normal.

I bet I’ve received far more 3:00 a.m. calls than any president. Some time its a real crisis. Other times its the hospital calling to say, “Mr. Jones can’t sleep. Can he have a sleeping pill?” Then both of us are awake. Hopefully Barack Obama is getting a good night’s sleep so he is ready to handle the crisis when the real work of government is done during the day.

The full text of the ad via The Politico:

Announcer: It’s 3 am, and your children are safe and asleep.

But there’s a phone ringing in the White House and this time the crisis is economic.

Home foreclosures mounting, markets teetering.

John McCain just said the government shouldn’t take any real action on the housing crisis, he’d let the phone keep ringing.

Hillary Clinton has a plan to protect our homes, create jobs.

It’s 3 am, time for a president who’s ready.

Update (via Marc Ambinder):

Steve Schmidt, a McCain adviser, responded with a jab:

“With an ad like that, it’s more likely that the call at 3:00 am is, “Senator, you’ve just lost another superdelegate.”

    Trust me, if the White House gets a call at 3am and it has to do with the economy, we are in some serious trouble. NO economic crisis will warrant a call to the White House at 3am. If it does, there is nothing he/she will do to help it.

    Maybe a normal president couldn’t do anything about it, but remember we are talking Hillary Clinton. She would face gunshot from snipers to solve the problem if necessary.

    Make that children reading poems instead of gunshot from snippers.

    Wilbur and Orville Wright are not noted for having the first plan for an airplane. Leonardo DiVinci has a plan. Orville and Wilbur made a plane that flew.

    Sure Mrs. Clinton has a plan. She has lots of plans Sadly they don’t fly. We in Upatate New York are stil waiting for the what 600,000 new jobs she had plan to create in 2000.

    Mrs. Clinton doesn’t need yet another new plan. She needs some results, for a change.

    That’s what i like to see, DavidL, comparing Clinton to DaVinci AND using it as a subtle putdown. Two fully opposable thumbs up!
