The Clinton campaign today rolled out a South Carolina radio ad featuring basketball legend (and business impresario) Magic Johnson:
only Hillary is a proven leader… My rookie year, we won our first game on a last second shot. I was so hyped. But the captain of my team said, “take it easy rookie, it’s a long season, it’s a long road to the championship.” He was right. Winning comes from years of hard work and preparation. Whether it’s winning championships or a President who can lead us back to greatness, I’ll always want the most prepared and experienced person leading my team. That’s why I’m asking you to join me in voting for Hillary Clinton for President.
Check out the comments, where 80s era basketball fans recall that Magic was a pretty talented rookie himself who, when his captain was injured, gave one of the most performances in NBA history to clinch the championship.
Turns out the Obama campaign has some hoops fans on rapid response.
