Inside Barack Obama's 30-Minute Ad

The Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama aired a multi-network ad, asking the American people for their votes in the last days of the historic presidential campaign.

Though he said in the ad, which aired on CBS, NBC and FOX, as well as some cable networks, that he would not be a "perfect" president, he promised: "I will always tell you what I think and where I stand."

The ad contained specific cornerstones of Obama's proposed presidential policy, as well as interviews with citizens affected by the economic crisis, like an automotive factory worker and retirees concerned about health care. The ad also touched on Obama's relationship with his parents, and his wife and two young daughters.

At the end of the 30 minute broadcast, Obama appeared live, making an appeal to an excited Florida swing-state crowd: "In six days we can come together as one nation and one people and once more choose our better history. That's what's at stake, that's what we're fighting for." For sure he will win as the new president of the US.
