Clinton Plays the Bin Laden Card

I've been on the road all day, so I haven't seen Sen. Hillary Clinton's new TV ad until just now.It features, to my knowledge, the first image of Osama bin Laden to be used in a TV ad this political season.The image comes alongside other historical images presidents have had to deal with -- headlines about the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and the Cold War, images of Pearl Harbor and soldiers and Katrina, Nikita Khrushchev and Fidel Castro...and OBL.Previous Republican TV ads featuring bin Laden have met with condemnation from Democrats. In 2006 and in 2002. What do you think? Above board or fear-mongering?- jpt
