“Today, we face a choice about who we are as a nation,” Clinton says at the start of the one-minute spot, which goes on to juxtapose Trump’s words condoning violence and mocking a journalist who has a physical disability, with a more inclusive message from Clinton, who last week became the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

6. + 1,000

It's a slogan that could be translated into a dozen or more languages.

From The Google:

En conjunto más fuerte (Spanish)

Plus forts ensemble (French)

Strangera tagethera (Bengali)

Nguvu pamoja (Swahili)

Et fortior nobis (Latin)

etc.

7. I don't think it has been used for a major US political campaign.

Hillary must run a positive campaign to contrast herself against Hair DrumpFührer's negativity.

This meets that requirement and then some. Will re-persuade some wavering people at the edges of tRump's crowd.

12. It's a potent counterpoint to the Republican's standard subliminal spew

"Tough noogies for you poor, miserable proles. Pay your taxes so we don't have to. Shut up. Sit down. And blame the weak, sick, and hungry for all your troubles. Hah hah. Stupid suckers."

- Republican Party Role Model Donald Trump*

8. It's a lot better than David Cameron's "We're all in this together."

Seeing as it just wasn't true. The wealthy elite can ride out austerity in comfort.

9. I hope they feature some of the folks Trump ripped off

building his casinos. Small business people who got stuck and suffered when Trump declared bankruptcy and walked away with millions. This sort of ad worked really well against Romney--in campaigns both for Senator Kennedy and President Obama.

14. Excellent ad

It very effectively shows the contrast between Hillary and Trump, using actual videos of Trump's arrogance.
