I posted about presidential candidate Barack Obama's first national TV ad here. He has now released the second ad in what is clearly a "get to know the candidate" series of backgrounder pieces. We're looking for great work from the Obama communications team. They're already breaking new ground in that regard, allowing the formation of a large group of activists on Obama's own site that are opposed to his recent statements on Telecom immunity and the FISA bill compromise. Now that's a breath of fresh air. The Author, normally a strong supporter, let the Obama team know they were off-message on that issue; and, risking a dilution of brand as Arianna put it in a piece on the Huff post. Without further ado, or editorial comment, here is the new ad.
