New York saw the true face of U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton yesterday.
Clinton told The New York Daily News and other reporters that our television commercial discussing Clinton's opposition to NSA wiretapping provisions was "beyond outrageous."
Is that a threat by a U.S. Senator?
John Spencer believes that Senator Clinton will have to answer for vote on December 16, 2005, one where she wanted to continue a filibuster delaying re-passage of the Patriot Act.
Following the release of Spencer's television commercial Clinton politicizing national security, New York's junior U.S. Senator countered with her own ad.
NY1 reported on Clinton claiming our ad was "inaccurate" -- but the real problem is Hillary doesn't want to discuss her statements against all-important wiretapping provisions.
NY1 noted that this is a sea change.
Spencer stands behind the ad's accuracy. It's been well-researched. It's opened a valuable dialogue.
NY1 further observed that Clinton's stand on n is making no one happy
She can't decide whether she's Lamont or Lieberman.
Spencer's campaign held firmly to the message, while Hillary's legions have been scrambled.
The New York Times called it "A Senator's Opening Salvo" and noted that its running in Upstate, New York, Westchester County and Long Island.
The real story here is that Hillary Clinton is as much running against herself as John Spencer.

Spencer's television commercial prompted this dialogue in The National Review on whether Senator Clinton is a "dove" or a "hawk" (with e-mail running about 5 to 1 in favor of her being a dove).
The Spencer Blog has also noted that Hillary Clinton has been prompted to rush her first ad -- and it's a "positive ad" -- ready made for 2008.
The last Wall Street Journal poll conducted by Zogby had Hillary Clinton at 53.7 percent.
Senator Clinton's nervous.
Candidate Clinton is coming out but is she showing up for New York's U.S. Senate race?
