I mentioned the Nancy Reagan angle so it factored in their impressions. I sent them the link to the ad on YouTube. I called them up to hear what their thoughts were: Here's their response in the best way I can paraphrase.
1."I don't see anything wrong with it. Good ad"
2. " Webb served in Vietnam? News to me. I'm impressed. nothing scandalous about what I saw. I was impressed with what I heard"
3. "Hot air from Nancy. I never liked her anyways. It is an appealing ad."
4. "Jenny, I need to read more about this guy. I liked what I saw."
5. "Straighforward campaign ad. charming guy. good voice too." Yes, she used "charming".
So there it is - I guess I was wrong on this, being too cautious and all. Webb should run it at full bore. :)
Go for it. Nancy is going to find another astrologer to tell her what to do.
