(Elizabeth) Warren may retool TV ads -- Is urged to show a personal side
Boston Globe ^ | September 12, 2012 | Frank Phillips

Posted on 09/12/2012 4:17:58 AM PDT by Zakeet

Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — amid growing unrest from party activists and leaders — is facing pressure to make a major shift in her television advertising with a new series of commercials that seek to soften her image, while focusing more directly on her GOP rival, Senator Scott Brown.

According to top Democratic leaders in Massachusetts, Warren campaign advisers are considering a new strategy that will be aimed at toning down what those leaders call the preachy tone that has dominated her ads until now. Instead, some of the spots would rely more on the voices of voters from all walks of life describing what Warren’s supporters say is the warm personality of a popular university professor. They would also zero in on Brown, acknowledging that while he is a likable public figure, he is not the moderate Republican that he makes himself out to be.

Television ads are considered critical to wooing independent voters in one of the most hotly contested Senate races nationwide.

The pressure on Warren to shift her media strategy comes as Democrats, including some in Washington, have become worried that her commercials give off an unappealing image. Several of the spots that ran through the summer featured Warren speaking directly to the camera, projecting what they termed a know-it-all and even off-putting likeness.

With her animated speaking style and tendency to gesticulate, Warren at times comes across as a “scolding advocate,” they said, while Brown’s own ads have helped him polish his image as a likable, Massachusetts-rooted political figure.

Good idea. Perhaps a video of her making pemmican in the lodge for her children would take the edge of her public image.

Yes, she should definitely talk about her personal experience. Tell us about Chief Grandfather High Cheekbones, and what it was like as an American Indian at Rutgers Law.

She’s as prickly as a porcupine, and Brown needs to run with that. Any opportunity for one of his people to ask her an incendiary question on camera during an unscripted moment, and who knows what she will blurt out. Which almost always looks awful.

Ah, yes. How I fondly remember my sixth grade pastimes back in '62. It was the only way to sneak a peak back in those dark days.

I’m in NH, but we re in the Boston TV market so we are deluged with Warren’s “the system is rigged against you” ads. She’s a disgrace.

My youngest daughter is a college student and works at The Gap. She said her employment quiz asked questions like Warren’s (to test your honesty).

Questions like:

Is the system rigged?

Is it okay to steal a couple of items from a million dollar company, will they even notice since they make millions?

Do you think people cheated their way to land better jobs?

Etc.

What is she going to do? Wash her dirty laundry in front of the camera? I can’t stand listening to woman, everyone of her commercials come across as a woman whining that women don’t grow up to be men and it’s not fair.

Her retooling would result in a candidate of a different feather I guess.
