I'm sure you've heard about Lifetime's successful drama series Army Wives which recently entered its second year, the season opener playing to historical rating highs for the network. You also probably heard about the promos done by Presidential contenders John McCain and Barack Obama for the show, and of course how could they have said "no" to the request? Not consenting would have brought their patriotism into question, no doubt. Such is the trivial political world we live in today. I saw the spots on air and had to go to Lifetime's Army Wives website to watch them again (and there are some good links to actual groups involved with supporting military families) .
In case you've missed the two spots, here they are:
(I have to confess, McCain lost me at "...because Cindy makes me watch with her." Ugh.)
Let's hope the television recommendations from the candidates end here. I sure don't want to see either of the fellows touting the fall network line-ups, do you? That's our job, for pete's sake!
