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."

    Hillary, I am a big fan of yours. However, you need to swallow your pride and step down. You can only win with the super delegate vote–is that the kind of win you really want? Ignore your husband's prodding, make a deal with Obama and take the vice-president slot. Go, Hillary!

    Recently, it Obama who has been attacking and going negative all time. Who Obama thinks he is? Obviously, he thinks only he can attack (and the CNN) but not the other way around?

    I'm so tired of Obama's politics!

    The democrat delegates will give Obama the nomination.

    They can't afford not to.

    They will destroy the party if they don't.

    Not that it would be a bad thing.....

    I do hope Hillary clinches this nomination - what will you do, Obama GIRL? Run Back to Hillary and make some ill founded excuses – GO IN PEACE!!!

    Good Luck Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton

    The right to free speech does not include only you (even if it is poorly rhymed), but as well the rest of us and ALL of the political candidates.

    Mrs. Clinton has just as much right to stay in this race as your double-talking, double-standard, double-wanna-be Obama.

    This video is downright offensive and CNN should be ashamed of itself for helping to promote it. Perhaps this girl should take a refresher civics course. That this race for the nomination is so close that it's a great example of the democratic process at work. Having Hillary drop out now, before all the votes are in, would be yet another step toward facism.

    Awe... Jeezzzz!

    Wait until the dirt on "Obama Girl" comes out then no one will want her endorsement.

    Hey Obama Girl, remember Spring 2003???

    Why does CNN even provide any media exposure for the Obama girl? She is obviously a self-serving opportunist, who is using the election as a means for getting attention for herself. She didn't even vote. I say we should all just ignore her.

    Obama girls needs to know that the advertising firm used her as stock footage for anyone to buy. Because she happened to be in a Hillary ad just comes with the territory. She can plead all she wants but she sounds whiney to me. The race is still wide open and contrary to some beliefs any one can still win. Obama Girl is just milking her 15 mins of fame. I guess if I were her I'd do the same but honestly that is all it is the use thru another to be noticed.

    Mike
    – You Clinton supporters are unbelievable. Why would anybody in first place would want a negative campaign.

    And why did your Candidate let Obama run off 12 in-a-row?
