Ettinger:    For, right now, I can’t see it happening, but I would never just say no, because who knows what’s going to happen, like, years and years down the road?  This definitely thrust me into this politic world that I was not involved in, but I think that’s been, like, the biggest gift because I never expected my life to take this turn and have all these doors open for me to learn all these great things.  Like, I’ve been able to do videos with Mike Gravel, Senator Mike Gravel, and Ralph Nader, like, in a million years I would never expected to be in Ralph Nader’s office, shooting a video with him or learning the Soldier Boy Dance with Mike Gravel, like, that’s crazy stuff.  Going to the White House Correspondents’ Dinners and all the debates, like, this was great for me, and I just am trying to take as much of it in as I can and learn as much as I can.  The E! Channel named me “The Hottest Girl on the Web,” which was pretty hot, which was very flattering.  I was able to go on Saturday Night Live.  That was a dream come true, and, I guess, recently, one of the coolest things was obviously going to the Democratic National Convention and being on Bill O’Riley.  He really, like, had me really nervous, and it turned out I was one of the best interviews he had of 2008.  He just put out the list, so that was awesome.
