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."

    Ridiculous.....seeing as how she didn't even vote, she should probably shut up and stop turning an already circus-like campaign into more of a sideshow.

    This is a waste of time and space. Go home, girlie. You're old news. If you want to make a fool out of yourself, go join Hillary. She's got a three ring circus behind her.

    Since Obama is a “freshman” Senator, I’ve been trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. It bothers me that he states “he didn’t know” Wright preached anti-American sermons. He was unaware of the hatred. He also continues to change amounts used in financial transactions with Rezko. His advisors admit that his Iraq and NAFTA policies differ with what Obama says in his speeches. Security breaches were done by employees of his advisor/contributer. I feel he is either looking America in the eye and lying about these events – which contradicts his message about “changing the way things are done in Washington” or he really is oblivious to his own surroundings. If he truly didn’t know what goes on at his own congregation after 20 years of being advised by Wright and talking to people “in the streets of Chicago” or what was happening with Rezko- his next door neighbor, how can we believe he’ll be aware of what’s going on in the world. His speeches are wonderful, but how can we trust him to have good judgment on American issues and foreign policy when he doesn’t see what’s in his own front yard?

    And CNN is pimping out the Obama girl for what reason? Her career is trashy and Obama's campaign is getting there. Does this twinkly have any any thing to offer besides her stupidity?

    When is anyone who calls themselves a Democrat and supports Obama going to wake up and smell the coffee. He is 'Republican lite', it wouldn't surprise me if he somehow did get elected that he didn't switch parties and go over to the Reps. As for 'Obama girl' – just another in a LONG series of air headed bimbos looking for their 15 minutes of fame.

    WE LOVE YOU IN PA. HILLARY !!!!

    It is good to see CNN is keeping us posted with the important news of the world and maintaining journalistic integrity.

    It was kind of cute before but now that she's blatantly taken sides, this 'Obama' girl needs to shut her trap. I saw her interview on Hardball once and she was an idiot. I don't think the American people are interested in taking their cues from some bimbo.

    honestly reading some of the sore loser Hillary supporters shrieks it concerns me that some of you people are even allowed to vote. The ignorance on this blog is astounding.
    Why aren't you guys talking about Hillary's lies (Bosnia, Nafta, Ireland, Peter Paul etc etc ETC)
    Obama we know you are ready to lead from day one. It looks like Hillary is ready to LIE from day one.

    You Hillary supporters are all the same. There is absolutely nothing good or redeeming about your candidate so you attack Obama for the things that other people say and do. You look pitiful. You are mad at Pastor Wright, now its Obama girl. It's never ANYTHING that Obama has said or done himself.

    He will be a great President and you know it. Get over your disappointment that Hillary is losing and support Barack Obama for President.

    Hillary is not electable, just because you were married to the president that does't give you the experience. She lies, lies, lies and lies now i know why she always having secret meetings and even with all she said she did, all the countries shes visited i didnt hear one clear fact that said said she made anything happen. Hillary go back to bill and stand behind him like you always did.

    "Chalk up another young thing who just follows wherever anybody leads. "

    There's a lot young people leading right now in the war in Iraq that Hillary voted for. This might surprise you, but young people do know what's going on in the world.

    Look how Hillary is trying to warm up to Republican primary voters. McCain is already the Republican nominee. So...............in the following primaries she is trying to get republican voters to vote for her and sway the DEMOCRATIC primary to her. Republicans DO NOT want to face Obama in November.
