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."

    Stop crying about what's news and what's not. I got news for you. Everything is news. Let's be adults here. If what CNN post was not news then why read it. I think they have done their job.

    No doubt CNN.Com is Ettinger political Web site of choice. Where else she can find all the Political Analyst line up in support of Obama.

    This is what you consider a political ticker when the Dem party is on the verge of being divided. This is a disgrace to news reporting

    Okay, CNN, I'm having somewhat of a difficult time understanding why this article is accepting postings, but you aren't posting any of the messages on the article about Hillary LYING her face off. Is this news?

    As Clinton lost it out on intergrity, by lying that she was under sniper fire in Bosnia, she should just bow out honorably before other emperical evidences surface on her experience claims.

    What a sad state of affairs this is – giving this silly fluff news attention. This is indicative of how the line between presidential politics and Hollywood entertainment has been blurred. Theodore White (author of the "Making of the President" books) must be turning in his grave. You can do better CNN.
