This is very slickly done, but I'm not entirely sure I understand all the contours of the comparison. On one level, sure, Hillary is the establishment and Obama's a way to "think different."
But the commercial is a reference to 1984, to totalitarianism, and I don't see Hillary as a proponent of that particular political philosophy. I don't think that the most ardent Obama supporter would accuse Hillary of mass brainwashing and reeducation. At least when, you know, the current administration reduced hunger by redefining "hunger."
There are badder Orwellian fish to fry.
