The latest ad from John Kitzhaber is about jobs and education. Here's the transcript:
With an innovative plan to diversify our economy to create good jobs now and for the future, and with a pledge to improve and support education, and give every child who earns it two years of college, some of the people John Kitzhaber is working hardest for don't even have a vote.
John Kitzhaber. He's not running for office. He's running for Oregon.
Of course, the transcript doesn't do it justice.
Watch the spot. It's my favorite TV ad ever. Of course, my judgment is probably a bit off-kilter. You see: my son, Jake, is in the spot - along with a few of his friends.
(Jake's the "future record executive" - not that the music industry is likely to exist in its current form by the time he hits adulthood!)
