Obama girl pleads with Clinton to stop

 The Obama girl is out with a new Web video.

The Obama girl is out with a new Web video.

(CNN) - She's back.

Amber Lee Ettinger, the star of the last year's wildly popular online video "Obama girl," is out with a new video this week that decries Hillary Clinton's insistence on remaining in the presidential race.

The new video - titled "Hillary, stop the attacks!" - opens with a takeoff on Clinton's now-famous "3 a.m." ad, and quickly transitions to Ettinger addressing the New York Democrat head on.

"I know Obama's gonna win it/but you're sorta kind of stayin' in it. I think sometimes in this campaign/You've got a crush on John McCain," she sings.

"Can't you see its hopeless? It's become an Obama-nation. Is their any chance you'll back off? So he'll get that nomination," she also says.

In the 3 minute video, Ettinger also makes clear CNN.com is her political Web site of choice:

"I watch CSPAN and they're always showing one of your rallies/Checking the CNN Ticker, can't keep my eyes off the tallies."

Created by the Web site barelypolitical.com, the first "Obama Girl" video debuted last June and quickly became an Internet sensation. To date, it has been viewed well over 7 million times, according to You Tube. The video spawned several spoofs, including "Hot 4 Hill" and the "Brownback girl."

    Blind leading the blind. Obama is the one doing the attacks. He attacked Hillary first in the debates, his people have been throwing out garbage all day long. His pastor attacked Clinton in the pulpit and America. Now the new pastor of Obama equates Wright with Jesus.

    Get a life. Obama has all his people do the dirty work while he looks pretty with emotional driven speeches.

    Hillary is the real thing.

    Obama should be the one to step aside. He has shown himself to be unelectable. You are only as good as the company you keep. Right Rev. Wright?

    She sure has it right about Hillary having a crush on John McCain. She can't stop saying nice things about Weather Vane McCain.

    CNN you guys used THEIR where it should read THERE.

    I thought the "Obama girl" voted for Clinton. If so, why she still called the Obama girl?

    She needs a new hobbie.

    Chalk up another young thing who just follows wherever anybody leads. Let's just hope she comes to her senses and says NO to BO before it's too late.

    All is fair in politics and war. SNL helped HRC, so the Obama Girl video is appropriate fodder.

    Aren't you CNN producers, commentators, and journalists proud that the famous Obama Girl mentions your name in her songs!

    What a ding bat. Hillary is not a quitter and she never was. One airhead who wannabe a singer does not count. She should stay asleep before she gets hurt.
