Clint Eastwood and Bill Clinton Back in Presidential Ad Race

Former President for Obama; Mr. Eastwood for American Crossroads

By Published on .

Clint Eastwood and Bill Clinton were among the most talked-about speakers at the nominating conventions held earlier this year, but for different reasons. Mr. Eastwood gave a strange, rambling lecture to an empty chair that had some scratching their heads. The former president on the other hand was, well, Bill Clinton. When he's on, he's so on that even those who disagree with him have to give him credit for knocking it out of the park.

Now the two are featured in ads being released today. Mr. Eastwood is appearing in an ad for Republican super PAC American Crossroads. Mr. Clinton is appearing in an ad for the Obama campaign. In the Crossroads ad, Mr. Eastwood -- striking a tone similar to the one used in Chrysler's Super Bowl ad earlier this year, says that "America's been knocked down." He goes on to say that "Obama's second term would be a rerun of the first, and our country just couldn't survive that ."

Mr. Clinton notes similarities between Mr. Obama and himself. "The stuff some folks are saying about President Obama sound kind of familiar. The same people said my ideas destroyed jobs -- they called me every name in the book. Well we created 22 million new jobs and turned deficits into surpluses."
