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."

    What an idiot she is.She does not know what voting means or what it means to be a woman who has to work for a living. All she knows is showing off her body parts. Not exactly an enlightened woman.

    Good, everyone need to pressure Hillary to step down as she is destroying the democrats chances.

    Superdelegates starting from April will start endorsing Obama and pressure Hillary to quit.

    Obama is no longer a viable candidate!

    The Obama Girl actually voted for Hillary!

    We are electing a President not a Rock Star!

    This is so pathetic - people who actually listen to someone who calls herself "Obama Girl" really should not be allowed to vote.

  11. really

    The news reported that Obama girl did not even vote in the primaries-clearly, she wants her 15 minutes of fame out of this and is not that interested in making her vote count!

    Too bad the only thing I think of when I see her now is she was too busy partying to go vote when she had the chance. I think she gave up the right to tell anyone what to do in her videos when she didn't even vote for Obama when she had the chance.

    Really CNN? REALLY?

    Fan-tastic. Can we just ignore her? She didn't even bother to vote in the primary. Singing a song about a candidate doesn't count if you don't actually show your support when it comes time to do so.

    No word about the fact that she has a cooking tips web-show on Spike TV...guess that would show her as an obvious attention-getting nobody.

    I'm all for Obama...I just can't stand this girl.

    THIS IS ABSOLUTE NONSENSE. Why is CNN not posting any comments, especially on blogs that are negative on Hillary (see "misspoke")?!?! But there are 200+ comments on the blog about Obama being on vacation?

    WHAT A CROCK!

    Maybe Obama girl needs to get a life!! Stop the attacks!!! what the hell does she think she is doing in this video. Come on Obama campaign and supporters. Walk the walk and talk the talk. Stop being the biggest hipicrates in this party.

    This is your lead article in the Political Ticker?!
    You forgot to mention that the Obama Girl didn't actually go out and vote in her primary.
