Compassionate, Conservative, C-student
lines of text appear on the screen in sequence:
Cut to a working class New Haven kitchen. An angry mom yells at her early-teen child, waving his report card in his face.
Mom: "You think you're going to Yale with these grades?"
"But Mom! They took him!"
Cut to Yale's campus:
The camera follows the boy as he hikes up to a group of students on Yale's campus with his report card in hand. He hands them the card and asks if they think he could get in.
Cut to a series of clips of several students and groups of students shaking their heads apologetically, "You pretty much need all A's to get in here."
Final shot is of the boy with chin in hand, sitting on the steps of the library.
Voice over--something like: We need a president who sets an example of hard work and integrity.
How the funding works: These ads will be funded using a no-risk system that only the Internet makes convenient. This website will gather pledges for contributions. Once enough pledges have come in to fund one TV spot, the money will be collected, the spot will be aired, and then pledges will be collected for another spot. When you pledge a contribution, your credit card will be validated but not charged. Therefore, you don't have to worry about giving to a project that isn't going to take off. If not enough people pledge to run even one spot, then you lose nothing. If enough pledges do come in, then your contribution goes to making something wonderful possible.
