Eliot Spitzer’s Downfall Used to Market The Bank Job Movie?

Vote Obama, but Watch this Jack Nicholson Clinton Ad

I am a supporter of Barack Obama; I think Hillary Clinton may be a better President, but Obama has a few things going for him. He is more electable. Clinton divides, whereas Obama bridges the gap.
