Presidential Nominees Support ‘Army Wives’
June 5, 2008 10:38 AM
Presidential hopefuls John McCain and Barack Obama salute the U.S. troops abroad in spots airing during the season premiere of Lifetime’s wildly popular “Army Wives.”
Each candidate taped a 30-second spot saluting the troops that will air within the wildly popular series about how spouses cope and support one another while their husbands are at war.
It’s a brilliant move from Lifetime, but a no-brainer for McCain or Obama. How can anyone not support the troops?
What would be more interesting, and more inflammatory would be if both contenders taped 30-second spots for CNBC’s “Kudlow & Co.,” saying “I feel your pain,” as rising gas and food prices have consumers strapped, with the economy now being voters’ No. 1 issue this election.
I’m not holding my breath waiting for that to happen. Are you?
