This is a good ad. It would have been better long before now. And, as Blake Rutherford indicates, it might be optimistic to think that the Wall Street reform measure will pass. A D.C. reporter called me yesterday to ask my opinion of the thinking that she'd be undercut by defeat of the measure just before the election. (Obama doesn't like her part of it, supposedly.) I don't think it matters much either way. She has made a bold move that Wall Street doesn't like, which should help her just for trying, but I don't think the issue has gained much traction among Arkansas voters.
