Hillary Scare Ad Takes Page from the GOP

Waitasec: isn't it the GOP who are supposed to try to scare us into voting for a particular candidate?

The ad says:
"It's 3 a.m., and your children are safe and asleep. But there's a phone in the White House, and it's ringing — something's happening in the world. Your vote will decide who answers that call.

Whether it's someone who already knows the world's leaders, knows the military, someone tested and ready to lead in a dangerous world. It's 3 a.m., and your children are safe and asleep. Who do you want answering the phone?"
The Obama campaign didn't waste time replying. Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said:
"We don't think the ad is going to be effective at all. Senator Clinton already had her red phone moment -- to decide whether to allow George Bush to invade Iraq. She answered affirmatively. She did not read the National Intelligence Estimate. She still, curiously, tries to suggest that it wasn't a vote for war, but it most assuredly was...

This is about what you say when you answer that phone. What judgment you show...She, John McCain and George Bush gave the wrong answer."
I was expecting to see these scare ads in the general election, from the GOP vs. the Democrats. After all, we know if the Democrats win they'll welcome Al-Qaeda with open arms, right (insert sarcasm here)?

Watch the ad:
