First a congratulations to all of those who supported this opening effort and contributed to the running of the ad that ran yesterday in the Chicago Tribune. We've had an extremely enthusiastic response from everyone who has seen it. Contributions continue to come in and many new donors have been motivated by the ad. But as everyone knows we are far from Mission Accomplished. More contributions mean more ads, more pressure and more impact. And the more they see the more they know that not only is our message right but that the resources supporting it wont settle for anything less than what is right.
Which brings us to the most important part of this -- the nomination process in Denver.
There is a crucial difference between Senator Clinton's name being "on the ballot" and having her name being placed in nomination. And the difference is between being a genuine candidate and something that is nothing more than a symbolic sham. Both the DNC and Senator Obama's campaign may be attempting to negotiate a settlement where Senator Clinton's name is on the ballot but not placed in nomination. They may think that is enough to assuage her voters. They may think that voters can be fooled. Our ads are going to make sure they know that no one is going to be fooled.
We're going to let them know Senator Clinton's name on the ballot is not good enough. Her name must be placed in nomination for it to have any meaning so that super delegates have a real choice in deciding the nomination by casting their votes for either candidate. Nothing less is acceptable. And they're going to know it.
