Yes clay is great but will not remove scratches or swirls. To properly remove your swirls you will need a PC or Porter Cable Random Orbital Polisher. You will need to use a polish or light compound to remove the swirls. Then you can put a wax or sealant on over that.
1Z paint Polish - Poorboys Super Swirl Remover 2.5 are both great 2.5 being more aggresive than the Paint Polish. Then you can use a glaze on top of that (Vanilla Moose) or go right to a sealant or wax. When using your PC you can get different pads. I think a Orange pad would be aggresive enough for you. Then you can use a white or black for finishing.

Or if this is not for you... bring it to a professional.
Do you know how to buff a car??? If you do, swirls are not that hard, go get a 3m product called finesse it II. After you go over the whole car, it will have swirl marks!!! Get a different buffing pad, and use a 3m swirl mark remover!!! It is about a 4 hour project, but I do this to mine every 6 months, and my paint looks like it is showroom fresh!!!! I also own a detail shop, so it helps to know what you are doing. If not, you should be able to get a professional buff from a detail shope for 100-125!!!!
3m swirl mark remover has some fillers in it, so you are basically hiding the swirl marks. If it is your first time attacking the swirl marks, you need to go over the car with 3m fi2 polishing compound (what spfdfanatic suggested) a good 3-4 times with a pc ( i reccomend a porter cable random orbital). this will leave the car slightly hazy, which then, you would need to take care of using klasse AIO (klasse all in one). go over the car 1-2 times with AIO and it should be good as new. a whole detailing process (wash, clay,polish,wax) should be a 1 day project.
