New Virgin

The Washington Post's Al Kamen says departing N.Y. Gov. Eliot Spitzer is the latest politician to help Virgin Mobile sell cell phone contracts, joining Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the line in a Canadian newspaper campaign:

"A photo of Spitzer, Love Client No. 9, has a bubble that says 'I'm tired of being treated like a number.'

"Well, not to worry, gov'ner. 'At Virgin Mobile, you're more than just a number,' the ad says. 'When you call us we'll treat you like a person, not a client. Whether you're #9 or #900, you'll get hooked up with somebody who'll finally treat you just how you want to be treated.' "

Obama's ad will be out shortly, apparently, and show him in a swimsuit. Here's Hillary's treatment:
