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."

    Maybe Obama Girl was the one in the hills with a sniper rifle. Or in Clinton's imagination with a sniper rifle.

    While obviously not at all determinative of leadership ability, it's nice to note obama has the support of Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johannsen and Obama Girl. he must be doing something right! 🙂

    Well, I guess she got her 15 minutes of fame and then some. How nice. And why do we even bother giving this story a look on CNN? Why is CNN running it? Must be a slow news day ...

    I would watch CNN too, if I was naive enough to be an Obama supporter – the pro Obama bias is hard to stomach for rest of America. Your growing list of on-air Obama apologists is unrivaled! Only Anderson Cooper even tries to be fair!

    Obama girl didn't even exercise her right to vote for Obama on Super Tuesday because according to Obama girl, "I didn't get a chance to vote because I'm not registered to vote in New York." So why didn't she vote in New Jersey, where she is registered? She said, "I was in Arizona for the Super Bowl - every time I get in the airplane I get sick."

    She is not even old enough to vote.

    Go away little girl.

    Hillary has won all the big states needed to beat McCain.

    Hillary already has more ELECTORAL votes than Obama...and that is not even counting upcoming Pennsylvania where s he will crush Obama.

    Hillary win be the next President..period.

    CNN: Do you really have to give this idiot more exposure?

    There's bad stuff happening all over the place and you have to
    give her a plug?

    How about reporting on the annual SEAL KILL IN CANADA?
    (that's due to start very shortly) I know that reporting on something like
    that wouldn't be as "fun" for your male egos, but it's WAY more important.

    I love CNN's incorrect usage of the term "there", using the possessive "their" instead. It must not take much to become an editor/journal for CNN anymore, you just need a Myspace-esque understanding of the English language.

    If Obamanites were confident they wouldn't be so insistent
    that Clinton quit the race. Maybe they're worried that Obama
    has hit his peak. Could be. Time will tell.

    For anyone asking why this is news...

    The reason CNN highlighted this web-video as opposed to the countless others out there is because "in the 3 minute video, Ettinger also makes clear CNN.com is her political Web site of choice".

    Good one, CNN. This sort of thing should be on E, not CNN.

    Just anything for CNN to glorify Obama and dig at Hillary. Fair and Balanced seems to have traded channels.

    Haha, funny! But it's Obama who attacks Hillary now. Hillary is not attacking anybody.

    The video should be called: Obama, stop attacking!

    OBAMA 08. The Clintons has done enough damage to this country.

    Obama has won twice as many states, leads by roughly 1 million votes and has an insurmountable lead in pledged delegates. Why does the media still say this race is close. Would the race be considered close if Hillary had won twice as many states and had a 1 million vote lead?

    THIS RACE IS OVER. Why dont you report on that CNN???

    Hillary can stay in the race as long as she wants. She ran from that plane in Bosnia "under sniper fire" for the right to stay in this race – and there wasn't any tea being served on the tarmac either. She is ready on day one – ready for tea on the tarmac that is.

    Just wanted to take a moment to thank CNN for attempting to choose the democratic presidential candidate – thanks for only reporting favorable news about Obama. This is certainly not news. You should be ashamed.

    Obama's above politics as normal. Yeah Right! His surrogate's are playing the same political game that been around for centuries. He is no different. He peddles hope to the naive and the country just may pay for the hype. Does Obama girl really matter? It seems so. I may have to change my name to "Obamamademevoterepublican"
