Oregon Sen. Gordon Smith is one of the most vulnerable Republicans up for reelection this year. If you watch this ad, you'll notice that he doesn't mention that he's a Republican. Instead, the whole thing is presented as if it were an endorsement from Barack Obama.
Republicans ended up losing the Louisiana House special election in which they road-tested the strategy of knocking Democrats by connecting them to Obama. But I didn't think we'd see a complete reversal of that idea, with endangered GOPers embracing him. Not good news for McCain, if this catches on.
