Obama Girl: Crush on the President Fading

"The minus coming from the issue of not clearly communicating what his health care plan was," he explained.

Relles said he created the video not just because he was a supporter of then-candidate Sen. Obama, but because it "would make a really funny video." But, he said, he probably wouldn't do that video again now.

"I wouldn't create that video again not because I don't support Obama, because I do, it's really a satire of how people were going insane for him as a candidate, so it probably wouldn't be appropriate to do the same video now," he said.

What's in Store for 2012?

"It's inevitable, the excitement around the candidate is different than the excitement around the president. It'd be weird if 70,000 people were still following him around," Relles said. "He deserves an A for the way he ran his campaign, it was brilliant."

Relles, who created the "Crush on Obama" video in June 2007 now runs www.barelypolitical.com and www.barelydigital.com, and says he plans to use Ettinger in his future videos. He says he is looking forward to doing a lot more videos once the 2012 elections start heating up.

"We'd be ecstatic if Sarah Palin would run for president, it would definitely provide us with a lot of fodder," he said.

Huckabee, who is a now a Fox News show host, asked Ettinger, who appeared as a guest on his show Saturday, "When's my video coming out?"

"If you're ready, I'm ready," she joked.

So is Ettinger planning on doing a video for Huckabee?

"Don't quote me on doing the videos on anybody yet," she said.

What about the Sen.-elect Scott Brown?

"Well, maybe, after seeing his Cosmo ad," she joked.

"My options are open," she said. "I don't think I'm going to be anyone's girl, being Obama Girl was enough for this long, for sure."
