Hillary’s Leaving the Band

This is probably my favorite Clinton video of the cycle. It’s really well done, it’s not celebrity driven, and it’s pretty hilarious. I’ll be curious to see if it actually succeeds in gaining traction with young people online, which I’m sure is at least part of the Clinton campaign’s goal, or if it’s merely picked up by Beltway pundits as Clinton trying to be casual. For what it’s worth, I found it via Dana Goldstein at TAPPED and looking at YouTube, the only link trackbacks it’s received are from Politico, Real Clear Politics, a comment in a DailyKos open thread, and a MyDD diary. It has over 180,000 views in a little over a week.

Also, is it just me or does it sound like Death Cab for Cutie’s “Transatlanticism” piano intro is playing in the background the somber part of the video?
