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 for one find Sen. Obama's views on several comments being one sided and as a matter of fact this "Obama Girl" add just goes to show how his campaign is afraid that he could actually lose. He sure will not get my vote..

    Obama girl was too lazy to even vote... She has no room to tell the leading candidate what to do??? Obama is a fraud and a joke! The liberals in the Dem party are crushing their chance of a Dem victory. McCain will crush Obama and his racist pastor!

    Hillary 08/McCain 08

    Obviously this is just a fun humorous story like the video.

    A little comic relief is needed in this campaign.

    So, relax people, enjoy the moment, enjoy the chuckle and stop taking every little thing so seriously.

    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 Hillary will crush Obama.

    Hillary will be the next President....period.

    When interviewed, "Obama Girl" was apathetic to politics, yet we are using her music videos for political analysis?

    This girl didn't even vote for him! She really cares.... about being paid to make Obama videos.

    Sen. Clinton will either lose now or later. Best option is to do it for the Party and get out now. Your misrepresentation will haunt you forever!!!

    It is really sad that a girl who does not have any political sense making head lines.

    America seemed to care about the 3 a.m. ad . So, it is newsworthy to see what this girl has to say. She is very representative of the new generation........and the new movement in general. Republicans and Democrats alike will vote for Obama in November.

    First thing that bimbo should do is to go back to school and learn proper English.
    "gonna, sorta, stayin" looks really bad on CNN.

  22. Eye Opener - Las Vegas

    And since when is this news worthy of CNN?
    She did not even vote during the primaries.

    Why doesn't CNN just endorse Obama already?

    So now we should listen to some bad singer as to who is the better candidate?

    C'mon CNN, quit promoting this stuff. Let it stay on youtube where it belongs.
