The Bill Richardson Comedy Hour (or Minute)

Posting these ads is not meant as an endorsement. I just thought it was refreshing to see a presidential candidate doing positive campaign ads that highlight his credentials in a humorous way. Nothing nasty aimed at his opponents. No fake-sounding promises. No vomit-inducing sentimentality. Simple, slightly weird, and effective.

Haha. Those were pretty good! Yeah, yeah... it's time for that. The generations have passed sufficiently for us to take this kind of approach, most definitely. Much better than an attack ad, for sure. I'm impressed that he'd go out on a limb like that. Good stuff, and thanks for sharing it.

That's great. Of course it works for him, because he is that qualified.

Jeff and Liam,

It will be interesting to see how effective these are, and if he'll do more of them. These were shown, I believe, in Iowa. And I wonder if any of the other candidates will follow suit. My guess is that they won't. Not many of them could carry it off, it seems to me.
