Watch the best, worst political ads of this fall’s presidential campaign

My latest column lists my picks for the best and worst political advertisements of this fall’s presidential campaign. But don’t take my word for it; see them yourself. Here are links to the commercials I mentioned in the column:

Best positive ad, Obama: Obama for America, “Determination”

Best positive ad, Romney: Mitt Romney, “Too Many Americans”

Most effective negative ad, Obama: Obama for America, “My Job”

Most effective negative ad, Romney: Mitt Romney, “Right Choice”


Best celebrity ad, Democratic:, “Vote” (Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington)

Best celebrity ad, Republican: American Crossroads, “At Stake” (Clint Eastwood)

Best celebrity ad, special Bill Clinton category: Obama for America, “Clear Choice”

Silliest ad: Obama for America, “Big Bird”

Most risque ad: Obama for America: “Lena Dunham -- Your First Time”

Special award for artistic merit: Americans for Prosperity, “The Dinner Table”

As always, I hope you’ll feel free to nominate your own favorites and unfavorites as well.
