Clint Eastwood’s Super Bowl Spot: A Rallying Cry to Unify America

Clint Eastwood’s Chrysler spot, which ran during the Super Bowl halftime show, played out like commentary on political division, all the while promoting the carmaker and its motto “imported from Detroit.”

“Halftime in America,” a twist on Ronald Reagan’s famous “Morning in America” spot, should be the type of themes that President Obama’s reelection campaign should run, what with the White House highlighting its success in rescuing the auto industry but also as a way to resurrect his ’08 theme of an end to hyperpartisanship.

Eastwood is a Republican, and during the press tour for his recent “J. Edgar,” praised Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain, but wasn’t exactly complimentary toward Mitt Romney.
