4. In a commercial for Fidelity
a woman goes through childhood to old age and part of her transformation is she goes from Democrat to Republican.

How do you know that?
Is it explicitly stated or shown? I don't really watch TV, so I haven't seen this.

8. old spot
Kind of a time lapse showing a woman growing older, voiceover throughout, saying things like, "I was a hippie, a yuppie, a Democrat, a Republican" etc. The idea being that throughout all your changes in life, you can count on Fidelity.

Personally, I think it just shows that the woman has no real core values, and it's no big deal. But, whatever.

9. It shows a mature woman and they say this is Carol
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 07:40 PM by TrueAmerican
She's been called hippie, preppie, democrat, republican. mom, CEO, Cancer patient, cancer survivor, fundraiser, spokesperson, and soon to be world traveler. (I left a few out)

It protrays her life from going from wacko hippie to republican world traveler.

10. Is that the ad where she is embarking on *world travel*
That commercial PISSES me off...it's like they infer that when she was "young and foolish" she was a Dem but after becoming a repuke in her grand old fart wisdom that hence she is such a brain trust that she can *afford* and has *earned* world travel.
