Here are Jerry Brown, Meg Whitman and Arnold Schwarzenegger at the Women's Conference a couple weeks ago. The host of the "Today" show, Matt Lauer, asked both gubernatorial candidates if they were willing to get rid of their negative ads and make positive ones instead. Brown said yes but Meg Whitman said no and gets booed by the women in the audience.
Meg Whitman obviously opposes making positive ads because that would only jeopardize her candidature. She is already losing as it is. Not attacking Brown in her ads would only help Brown gain more votes. Watch this video and tell me what you think. Do you think both candidates should post only positive ads? Why or why not?
