Hillary Clinton's campaign has just released a new ad. Modeled on its "3 a.m." ad that got so much attention, it's targeted against John McCain, specifically on the issue of the economy.

In the ad, which is running in Pennsylvania, an announcer intones, "It's 3 a.m., and your children are safe and asleep. But there's a phone ringing in the White House and this time the crisis is economic. Home foreclosures mounting, markets teetering. John McCain just said the government shouldn't take any real action on the housing crisis; he'd let the phone keep ringing."
