Barack Obama (D-I Need You to Do Me a Favor) has launched his first ad campaign with a small buy on national satellite television (DISH, DirectTV). Via MSNBC’s First Read:
The ads, per NBC’s Alex Moe, urge supporters to go call the campaign’s number or visit its website. “It all starts with you, making a decision to get involved because we’ve got so much more to do,” President Obama says in one of the ads. In another ad, he says, Starting right now, call the number on your screen or visit JoinObama.com to help build our campaign in your community. It’s up to you to fight for the values we all share. Don’t sit this one out.”

Question #2: Forget Question #1. Does Obama have any drawing power this time around?
