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."

    She didn't even vote for him in the New York Primary – fact is, she didn't vote at all. Can't believe you guys consider this news.

    Knowing it is your right to express your opinion, it is a serious waste of time to even talk about Obama's girl especially when she has no significant impact to the political race. Did she exercise her right to vote? Did Obama's camp educated her about the politcal process and how many state needed to have primary before the convention? People please don't waste your time on this girl.

    All Obama all the time. Other two candidates: you can't get elected if nobody talks about you.

    I see someone has already pointed this out, but no one has made the correction: how about learning the difference between "their" and "there"? I expect more from CNN.

    CNN – You disgust me. With this and "Ballot Bowl 2008" you are making a mockery of true news and the credibility of your team. By trying to ratchet up your ratings, you're turning into the center-to-left version of Fox News. Disgusting. If you cared about your readers and what's left of your reputation, you'll delete this meaningless post.

    No! Air head Bimbo! Obama needs to step down. Obama is hurting the Democratic party by continuing to stay in the race. His negative baggage (Rev. Wright, etc.) is dividing our country.

    Hillary 08'

    This Obama Girl thing would be better if she wasn't such an uneducated moron.

    These are truly sad times for our political affairs and our nation.

    Obama cannot be trusted! He became an "hero" with his "historical" speech of race in America out of necessity! So, why should we trust him?

    CNN has to cover Obama Girl, because the candidates refuse to discuss the real problems of this country and their perceived solutions.

    Do you think maybe this talentless bimbo is simply trying to milk this as much as possible?

    CNN, put this in the Entertainment section were it possibly belongs. Not here.

    Hillary has definitely lost my vote! The lying Bosnia trip episode just adds to the conglomerate reasons why one should not vote for Hillary:

    Hillary supporters should google HILLARY PROJECT and research this candidate before you make the huge mistake of voting for her.

    This is so laughable, its unreal. OK, so the best defense for Obama is this girls' video? That is the best CNN has to offer today? This is pathetic.

    To some degree, Obama girl does make sense, because as long as Hillary stays in this race, in which everyone knows she can't win, the more it will cause division in the Democratic Party. The money that the Hillary's campaign is raising could go towards to Democratic Party as a whole. But she won’t quit. She will destroy the entire Democratic Party before she quit. She’s a liar who has no dignity or consideration for the Democratic Party.
