Hillary Against Rove

An e-mail from Hillary Clinton's campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle just went out to supporters introducing Hillary's first ad in which Doyle also took the opportunity to contrast the candidate, again, directly with Karl Rove.

Doyle wrote, "Just yesterday, Karl Rove took a shot at Hillary, using the media spotlight he got from his resignation to attack her. From the genius who predicted a Republican victory in 2006 and a permanent Republican majority, it's just another wrong-headed statement."

Putting Hillary up directly against the Bush administration's bogeyman has emerged as something of a staple in the campaign. And to that extent, Hillary really might be sad to see Rove go.

Full letter after the jump.

Even in a history-making campaign, some days stand out more than others. This is one of them.

Just hours ago, on TV stations across Iowa, we launched the very first ad of our campaign. It features Hillary delivering a powerful message the way only she can, standing up for Americans who are invisible to the Bush administration. Watch it here:

This is Hillary's first ad of the campaign — and it's yours too. When I say we're making history together, this is what I mean: over one million of you, working side by side with Hillary, have achieved one more milestone in our effort to overturn George Bush's failed policies and to bring about the change America needs.

Now let's get as many people as possible to see our work. Let's share this video with our friends, co-workers, families, and neighbors. Let's tell them to watch our ad and ask them to join the campaign:

From this point on, the pace will quicken. In a campaign this important — and this intense — time gets compressed, and we must be ready to move at lightning speed together, getting Hillary's message out across the country and hitting back when she's attacked.

And those attacks are getting more desperate. Just yesterday, Karl Rove took a shot at Hillary, using the media spotlight he got from his resignation to attack her. From the genius who predicted a Republican victory in 2006 and a permanent Republican majority, it's just another wrong-headed statement.

And I'm sure it won't be the last. When you fight the right-wing machine the way Hillary has — and come out on top — they lash out with more lies and smears. It's all they know how to do.

So let's keep fighting for what we believe in. And let's change our country. Hillary is ready to lead, but one thing is for certain: she can't do it without you.

This first ad is a big step forward, and you helped make it happen.

Thank you for everything you do.
