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."

    I am also wondering why there aren't posts allowed for the article mentioning Hillary's outright lies about her experience. This Obama girl article isn't news, CNN. This is trash media. I know you can dig deep down and do better.

    Now, let's open comments on Hillary's lies.

    Another comment that won't be posted......

    If Obama Girl was really as concerned about the outcome of the presidential election as she claims to be, she would have actually VOTED in the primary election. It's pretty clear that the only thing she cares about is shamless self-promotion. CNN, you ought to be ashamed of yourself for covering this non-story and contributing to the media hype over something that is completely irrelevant to the real issues facing Americans. Can we get back to real news, please?

    This is about as news-worthy as Chelsea campaigning for her mom.

    CNN is very biased. In today's photo exhinits for the three candidates, Hilllary gets 90 % of the photo. Of course, a woman is more to look at in her many power wardrobes

    All you Obama supporters, go to utube and watch Rev. Wrights sermons. Would you go to a church like that or even worse have your kids with you? How can you vote for someone for President of the United States that has that type of judgement.

    Whining and Crying is all we hear from the Clinton supporters. Obama girl has much more intelligence than these people if that says anything. When anyone makes a solid point that is negative towards Hillary they can only try to divert the attention by pointing fingers at something else. Now that's honesty!

    Bill is probably upset that Hillary's camp does not have girls like her.

    Why would CNN even cover this story?

    The CNN Ticker has just shown how blatently biased it is - way to drop your own name in this piece. Journalism is officially dead, I guess if the "obama girl" scratches your back you must do the same by legitimizing her worthless videos. You have officially become US Weekly.

    She is using the Obama's name to her won advantage.

    I am so tired of CNN's extremely biased coverage of this election. I can accept a left of center editorial policy to a point. But I feel like I am watching the Obama 08 channel. CNN commentators do a better jo of spinning events than Obama's people. And you skewer Hillary Clinton at every turn. Who's running your newsroom over there?

    It's be mudslinging if the final choice comes between McCain and Obama...and unfortunately Obama's camp & supporters won't know what hit them...and the only thing that they can yell is racism...
