Secretary of State Hillary Clinton insists she's not running for presidentAnd so it begins.
in 2012, but that hasn't stopped one of her supporters from rolling out a wishful ad.
William DeJean, a Chicago dentist, says he spent $3,000 to create the first "Hillary 2012" ad, and another $2,000 to begin airing it in New Orleans on Wednesday.
DeJean said the ad will also air in Washington, New York and Los Angeles in the next few days. He said he hopes the ad will give Clinton an incentive to run.
"In my opinion, we need the Clintons back in the White House to fix this country," he told FoxNews.com. "I don't think we're going in the right direction. I don't like this administration. I think they're ruining the Democratic Party."
"My ad is expressing what everyone is thinking," he added.
The ad is a 30-second ode of pure adulation, with a portrait
of Clinton rotating to symphonic music.
"She has more experience working in and with the White House than most living presidents," the caption reads. "She is one of the most admired women in our nation's history. Let's make sure the president we should have elected in 2008 will be on the ballot in 2012."
The ad ends by urging viewers to start now, and it displays a slogan: "Where there's a Hill, there's a way."
