BAGnewsNotes on Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Kick-Off Video

BAGnewsNotes generally reviews photos, but took a shot at analyzing Hillary’s announcement video today. He also had a problem with the panning camera:

Why was the camera slowly panning left, then right, throughout the video (except during the close ups)?

I’m sure it was inadvertent, but I’ll tell you what it made me think. On the credenza behind Hillary were three framed photos. In the one closest to Hillary was a photo of her with Bill. In the middle frame, I think the photo featured Hillary and Chelsea. I couldn’t make out the third.

It’s probably just my projection, but I read it as the campaign literally going back and forth, unsure how much to focus on Bill and Hillary as a couple (versus Bill) versus Hillary alone.

And thought the living room scene’s domesticity may not be the best choice for Hillary. I liked his idea of taping one on one conversations between Hillary and voters. She knows the issues and speaks well candidly. In fact, I think she’s better candid than scripted.
