This is what a good political ad looks like

Not since Paul Wellstone have we seen an ad that does so much to humanize a candidate as the one Minnesota DFL U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar issued Thursday with DFL congressional candidate Dean Phillips.

It’s not entirely clear whether the video is intended to support Phillips or Klobuchar, one in a tough race, the other in about as safe a race as Minnesota currently features. More than likely, the intent is to use Klobuchar’s coat tails.

But it’s a unique style we don’t see much of anymore.

Have a look.

At some point, I must explore whether this notion of calling a root beer float “an A&W” is a Minnesota thing.

Seen some decent ads? Post them in the comments.

Seen some awful ones? Don’t.
