Super PAC rolls out 'Let's Talk Hillary' videos to boost Clinton's image

Posted By on Mon, Oct 26, 2015 at 10:15 AM



You can now see on YouTube some of the spots developed by a super PAC supporting HIllary Clinton's presidential candidacy that use friends and admirers to paint a positive personal image.

Hundreds were interviewed for a series of videos and the first include testimonials from Arkansas. From the Washington Post:

“Let’s Talk Hillary” was created by Allida Black, a longtime supporter who co-founded Ready for Hillary, which laid the groundwork for Clinton’s presidential bid. It will be funded by and run out of Correct the Record, the David Brock-helmed group that works with Clinton’s official campaign on communications strategy.

Black is an academic historian and a leading expert on former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt. She said she is approaching the Clinton project with the same rigor she would an academic oral history. “This is ambitious, honey,” she said. “I don’t dream small, and neither does Hillary.”

The series starts today on Clinton's 68th birthday. Episodes have  been filmed so far in Arkansas and her childhood home of Chicago. Her time in Texas during the 1972 presidential campaign and in New York, where she was U.S. senator, also are to be featured.
