Absolutely killer ad from 1992 presidential election

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gNRDXjsL-4

1998 Alabama gubernatorial primary (Republican runoff). Another killer ad, something we can expect to see in a very unlikely event of Huntsman becoming Obama opponent.

Man, Kefauver looks like a total dork in that first one.  The Democrats in 1956 would've been better off campaigning as Dorks R' Us.......

McGovern was too far up the creek at that point it did not make a difference.

A totally non-attack ad from Tsongas (actually, one of the most decent ads I've ever seen)

Wendell Willkie in 1940, talking about his support for left wing economic policies. I guess he's trying to reassure voters that he won't roll back popular reforms.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUGfrQVWL1I

Willkie campaign film, "The Truth About Taxes," more on the right wing message here. Likening the New Deal to a fatal experiment. Attacking Keynesianism, civil servants, comparing bureaucracy to the Nazis and anti-tax stuff that would really come into vogue by the 80's.

Not really vintage, but I collapsed from my chair after seeing this.

Movie theaters most likely.  Indeed, the movie studio opposition to Upton Sinclair in the 1934 California gubernatorial race led to attack ads disguised as newsreels. "California Election News No. 1" and "California Election News No. 2"  The following link includes some scenes from them with commentary.

Jack Kemp's 1988 ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoDlcw5cs_A

Pete DuPont 1988 ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OabNPA2sA0

And something really old and rare: Albert Gore Sr. ad from 1970 (Senate reelection campaign), featuring young Al as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQ7DTLxs8Xw

The DuPont Ad reminded me of Bill Clinton's welfare reform for some reason.

George Bush 1980 ad. Not really spectacular but wanted to share with you political geeks.

http://youtu.be/ybElJxRan2o


Ronald Reagan 1976 ad saying that we need a leader who kicks the Soviet Union asses and doesn't appear weak to anti-communists.
