Everybody who’s got the ego to run for president has to think they’re a man or woman of destiny. And I bet even Tim Pawlenty does.

But it’s still not great to make your tv ads based on man of destiny imagery and edits. I’d defer to any students of film — maybe Roger Ebert can help us — but it seems to be part of the ‘sci-fi-archival-footage-jet-fighter-heroic’ genre, with perhaps an homage to Minority Report worked in.

You simply must watch this Tim Pawlenty ad.
