I agree Ted no longer seems like the brash douchebag that phoned Don after he ran that "Why I'm Quitting Tobacco" ad but you made several posts on how Ted is just as creative as Don. He's not; not even close. What Ted did was steal Don's protege and that's an important dynamic in this show.
yes, i certainly mis-stated what i meant, and was off on what happened. the real point is was getting at though i still hold by. which is how he seems utterly unable to compose himself around don, and that did not seem to be an issue for him before the merger.
while the ad idea for heinz was peggys idea, she was afraid to go after it because she only knew about it as a friend of stans, not as a business woman. it was only after teds urging and instance that they need to be somewhat ruthless with the info she came upon, that they contacted heinz and went for the business.
it seems that now that his "competition" with don is no longer as a competing agency, but rather as an equal of sorts, competing for who is who within the company structure, he has kind of lost himself and does not know how to compete in this new situation.
