Michael S. Dukakis' commercial shows a drug deal going down, recorded surreptitiously by a police surveillance camera. Dukakis is going to get tough on crime. The Rev. Jesse Jackson's commercial shows pictures of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman and John F. Kennedy, while a celebrity impersonator quotes them in a vague imitation of their voices. Jackson is part of a great tradition of Democrats.

As the Democratic campaign moves to New York--one of the country's most intensive and expensive political arenas--that question is about to be answered.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson, the second-place finisher in the Illinois primary, sought to draw attention Tuesday to his new lead among Democratic presidential contenders in popular votes cast so far in the primary season. But it was also apparent that the loss to Illinois Sen. Paul Simon here was not in line with his other finishes in the sense that it was more of a setback than a boost.

A top official of a key national Jewish organization charged Tuesday that the perception of the Rev. Jesse Jackson's advisers that Jewish groups only were interested in harassing Jackson and not according him a fair hearing was "false, unfortunate and offensive." Malcolm Hoenlein, executive director of the Conference of Major American Jewish Organizations, singled out Gerald F. Austin, Jackson's presidential campaign manager, as adhering to that view.

Mayor Edward I. Koch's trademark for years has been asking New Yorkers: "How am I doing?" The verdict after the Empire State's bitter and racially divisive Democratic presidential primary may be: "Don't ask." Koch, who backed Tennessee Sen. Albert Gore Jr., was forced to concede Wednesday that his unceasingly sharp attacks on the Rev. Jesse Jackson had backfired.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Friday escalated his attack on Massachusetts Gov. Michael S. Dukakis, saying the Democratic front-runner is further to the right than President Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in at least one aspect of foreign policy. Jackson charged that Dukakis opposes sending military aid to Mozambique's Marxist government--assistance that even Reagan favors.
