Obama campaign introduces first ad

Titled "Country I Love," this is one of what will likely be many attempts at refuting rumors that Obama is an anti-American Muslim who hates whitey without actually dignifying them with a response.

The ad includes pictures of Obama with his white mother, white grandparents, white soldiers, white people on the campaign trail and references his family's "Kansas heartland" roots. All that was missing were dogs and yoga.

Like McCain's first general election ad, it's very vague regarding any specific plans for an Obama presidency, and focuses more on introducing the candidate as a person.

The ad will begin airing in 18 states this weekend.
