|Description|| It may not be a trend, but Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein are making their second appearance in as many weeks in a campaign ad. Sen. Max Cleland (D-Ga.) is crying foul after his Republican challenger used the two villains in a television spot that, the senator said, portrays him as soft on national defense. |
The ad says that Cleland does not have the "courage to lead" at a time when "America faces terrorists and extremist dictators." The evidence? Cleland voted against the president's version of the still-pending Homeland Security agency 11 times.
