The Republican National Committee's independent expenditure arm is out with its first ad, goading the division between Hillary Clinton supporters and Barack Obama supporters at the Democratic convention.

Transcript:

ANNCR: Who has the experience to govern our nation?

Sen. Clinton: "Senator McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign. I will bring a lifetime of experience. And Senator Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002." (Source: CNN 3/8/08)

ANNCR: Barack Obama. He gives a great speech. But Americans must ask ourselves: should we elect the most inexperienced presidential candidate of our times? Or was she right? The Republican National Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising."

The ad airs in Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

UPDATE: Hillary Clinton responds to this and other ads using her words against Obama: "I'm Hillary Clinton and I do not approve that message."
