Keep in mind, these ads appeal to low information voters, and work amazingly well. According to the Washington Post:
A new television ad by Sen. John McCain aims to tap into anger at Sen. Barack Obama among the legions of Hillary Clinton supporters by suggesting that the Democratic nominee dissed his one-time rival. Erasing any doubt that McCain has his sights set on Clinton voters, the new ad uses Clinton's own words to suggest that Obama passed her over because of the tough campaign she waged.
The ad is titled "Passed Over." "She won millions of votes. But isn't on his
ticket," an announcer says. "Why? For speaking the truth."
According to the Washington Post: In a media availability with reporters following the breakfast, Clinton reiterated her opposition to McCain's ads."I don't appreciate having my name or my words or for that matter Sen. Biden's words used. There's nothing I can do about it, except speak out against it, and hope people won't give it any credence."
"If you voted for me, you have much more in common with Senator Obama on every issue I campaigned on, on every cause that I have stood for, than you do with Senator McCain," she said when asked what she thought of her former supporters considering a McCain vote.
