Maddow: What Ted Kennedy Can Teach Dems About Taking on Republicans on Jobs

Last night, Rachel Maddow offered the Democrats a bit of strategy on taking on current GOP fruntrunner Mitt Romney and also, how to be Democrats: look to Ted Kennedy's campaign from nearly two decades ago.

It's actually rather amazing how strong these ads would still be today, given that Romney is still running on his business record. Watch Maddow's segment, including several strong 1994 ads.

 

As Maddow herself said it:

 

"These ads are not just about him as a candidate... these are about the difference between Democrats and Republicans about what really matters to Americans, and it's not about the stupid Debt Ceiling fight...it's about jobs.

 Watch below for this, as well as what ad Maddow thinks is the best ad on the airwaves now.
