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."

    Obama girl has it totally backwards.

    Hillary's gonna win it
    Obama's the one sorta just stayin in it

    Sorry to break that kid's heart. Hillary will be the Democratic nominee, but no matter who runs up against him, McCain will win this election. Obama made the big mistake of staying in a church that hates most of America and what it stands for, and Hillary isn't honest enough to deal with the economy correctly. Tax and spend is her gig.

    This is the Obama girl alright. This message was meant for Michellen, not Hillary.

    I also can't believe that this is what CNN considers news. But...didn't we all click on the link? It's not CNN that's ridiculous, it's us...

    I know this has been said before, many times, but...

    Is this really Political News? Throwing in "Obama" and "Clinton" doesn't automatically make it a Political post. File this under "Entertainment" and get back to writing "Political" posts.

    Well, Obama Dude, instead of asking Hillary to stop, why don't you stop? You suck, you can't even sing! Maybe, you should attend Reverend Wright's (or Wrong) church. You can dance, right?

    Your right honey. If he's the nominee alot of people will run to McCain. Such a shame we could really do some good for our country and it's people with Hillary.

    Clinton says she 'misspoke' about sniper fire.

    More like lied about it. How can anyone ever forget that he/she was fired upon? Like Husband like wife.... only worse.

  10. Get it together

    She obviously does not know anything about politics. When you run for office you stay in the race until it's over. If anyone has blown his or her opportunity it is Barack Obama.

    Now CNN, give us some real political news and stop campaigning for Obama.

    bigben,

    what you said is the dumbest thing I have ever heard, and everyone in this blog is a little dumber for having read it.

    Are we that hard up for news that we let a bimbo like this take up this much space. We have so many problems in our country please stop wasting our time.

    She doen't even vote and CNN gives her coverage as if it matters.

    So.........I guess Hillary will say she has experience in Iraq now. Maybe she did a few tours of duty there right?

    I support Obama. This is not news. This is a shameless plug for CNN to "quote" the Obama girl as favoring CNN, even when that's not what she said/sang.

    I think Obama needs all the support he can get even if its from 'blondes'. I hope he clinches that nomination. Honestly, Clinton has no chance against McCain. Democrats, Obama's your only chance!!
