Description

In a stark, black-and-white ad that pictures her in a mask at Ground Zero, Hillary Rodham Clinton is treading on Rudy Giuliani's turf. The new commercial, launched yesterday in Iowa and New Hampshire, marks the New York senator's attempt to position herself as a champion of those whose health was endangered by the environmental effects of the attack on the World Trade Center. The aftermath of 9/11 has long been considered Giuliani's greatest strength, but the former New York mayor has also drawn criticism for failing to adequately safeguard the health of rescue workers. "She stood by Ground Zero workers who sacrificed their health after so many sacrificed their lives, and kept standing until this administration took action," the ad says. The reference is to Clinton's support for a medical screening and monitoring program for the disaster workers.
