The young lady, whose first name is Casey, was eight years old in this commercial, which was originally for a railroad. Whoever produced the Clinton ad bought the file footage and used it for her campaign ad. The irony of all of this is that Casey, who is now 17, has been actively campaigning for Obama (she'll be old enough to vote in November), so she was stunned to see herself in Clinton's ad. No foul play here - just plain weird.
Just as she promised, Casey now has an Obama ad about the 3 AM ad. VIDEO I didn't know they darkened the tint of the footage of her sleeping. The funniest part is at the end: "I'm Casey Knowles, and I approve this message, not the other one."
