'08: In Iowa and elsewhere, it may come down to who has the best TV ads
Advertisements [?]
Yeah, it sounds superficial, but I was doing some research on the '08 candidate's media teams. Edwards, Hillary and Obama have some proven pros on that front. Bill Richardson has a really funny and effective ad that is running in Iowa so his media team looks very sharp this early.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjOuL5qwNIc&eurl=http%3A...


Ok, so I looked up John Kerry's '04 media team for the primaries, and it turns out Jim Margolis from the GMMB consulting firm directed his TV ads for the primaries. Here's a bit on Jim Margolis:

Mr. Margolis, besides handling a number of gubernatorial and senatorial campaigns, produced some early ads during Mr. Kerry's primary race four years ago that were widely credited for the Massachusetts senator's strong showing in Iowa. He left the Kerry campaign early in April 2004 in a split described then as a fee dispute.

From what I've heard, Kerry was badly trailing Dean in Iowa up until he released his "Cure" tv ad. http://www.gwu.edu/~action/2004/ads04/kerrad112603.html


Who knows, maybe Kerry would have beaten Bush if Margolis had stayed on his team after the primaries. Anyway, Jim Margolis has signed on to direct Obama's ads with assist from David Axelrod.
