Even the People in Hillary's Ads Don't Like Her

3/8/2008 7:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hillary Clinton's "red phone" commercial helped propel her to big win in Ohio this week -- but one of the stars of the commercial is actually a huge Barack Obama supporter.



The first child featured in the ad -- which asks people who they want to answer the phone in the White House at 3:00 AM -- is actually Casey Knowles, an Obama volunteer in the state of Washington. The footage was shot eight years ago when she worked as a TV extra. Getty Images owns the footage and can do with it as it pleases.

Knowles, who turns 18 in April, told KING 5 in Seattle that she is for Barack all the way: "It's really sort of ironic that my image would be used to advocate for Hillary when I myself do not."

I think it's kind of funny, but it's only relevant in the fact that the Clinton camp did not do their homework. If I were a candidate for the most powerful office in the world, I'd want to know who's publicly speaking (or not) for me.

I will be so upset with Hillary Clinton if she chooses Sen. Obama as a running mate! After all we've heard , read and seen about him!! I will feel betrayed ... there is a reason why so many Americans have picked her over Obama, because of the DIFFERENCES that Clinton has pointed out such as NAFTA, Iraq, foreign policy, healthcare and the econamy.. they would be in contrast with each other's views on the same ticket!! What a let down that would be..

She looks great    

Uhh, TMZ/Harvey Levin, the people of CA, NY, NJ, MA, OH, TX, RI, FL, AND MORE would disagree with you.

Hillary will be our next President. Obama can accept VP, or miss his chance to weasel into the White House.

The truth about Obama is starting to come out now that the media's free ride is easing.

Obama cracks under pressure.

Women and many other groups will abandon the Democratic party if Obama is nominated.

If the Dem party wants to win the White House, Clinton will be nominated. It took the Clintons to win the White House back from multiple Repub administrations, and it will take a Clinton to do it again.

Otherwise, say hello to McCain for 8 years.

Since he's that bad why would you want him to be even a Vice President?? Makes no sense, really made me mad when former President Bill Clinton said a Clinton/Obama ticket would be unbeatable, they better not even consider Obama or she will lose my vote!!
