    Thank you Guam! We love the 7-votes you gave Obama!

    Better to have a win with 7-votes over Hillary than to let Hillary have a win with 7-votes!

    Even if Obama loses the rest of the states in the primary – she will have to win by 69%!

    So – the crunch isn't on Obama – it's on Hillary!

    Stupid people, 7 votes or 7 precincts doesnt mean 7 people. It can be 7000 or 70000

    "HAHAHAHA….. what a slap to Obama….. he won by only 7 votes!!!

    What happened to the double digit lead???????"

    What happened to Hillary's double digit lead in PA ( After all, that's her ancestral home). OBAMA DID WIN TEXAS

    he outspent hillary as usual, and had his paid workers on the ground, and he won her by 7 votes, doesn't compare to her big win in PA. he is sinking fast in the polls. drop out obama! hillary 08

    All you Hillary supporters that are claiming that BO was supposed to blow Hillary out is lying... It was supposed to be a close contest as it was, stop trying to minimalize another Hillary lost. If she had won, we wouldn't be hearing the Guam is unimportant and only 7 votes arguements!

    He added to his delegate lead and added to his state lead, and added to his popular vote lead, that is all that matters. Hillary will not be the nominee without going against party rules which would destroy the party and SD won't do that!

    So Hillary supporters get in line and support Obama...better now than later...Hillary WILL NOT WIN!

    I would encourage everyone to ALWAYS go to each state's official website and get the numbers there,
    CNN will always minimize numbers for Obama and
    CNN will always rounnd and give more numbers to billary

    so do your ownchekcing
    the same for Paul vs. Cllinton

    you can google that _ or California Courts, it is public so CNN can not say it ismade up, or wahtever like they do with everythinhg
    and if yu have not notice CNN is the only channel talkinga about the wright story THE ONLY place, they still have it as story number one as onegoogles cnn and then top story in the ticker sayin g that Obama is loosing ground even so he got 5 \super delgates won Guam, and people keep endorsing hm
    CNN is clearly Clinton National News but they want to be Royal CNN once the king and queen take the throne back (by lies, fraud and force, their style)

    I don't usually fall into the stereo-typing of either candidates supporters (both have some doozies) but today some of the Obama supporters are showing how delusional they really are. Apparently the wanted to accuse CNN of biased reporting so badly that they did not even bother to read the article. 7% or 7 votes? The article clearly states 7 votes 50.1%-49.9%. I guess that this isn't Baracks "educated" supporters commenting today.

    Is that 7 points or 7 votes? Come on a little accuracy here. Usually we hear it in points. If it's seven votes I would expect a recount.

    OH, REMEMBER TEXAS. OBAMA ACTUALLY WON TEXAS – HE GOT MORE DELEGATES. TO ALL THOSE CLINTON SUPPORTERS WHO ARE ACTING LIKE 10 YEAR OLDS AND MAKING FUN OF OBAMA'S WIN IN GUAM, YOU MIGHT WANT TO REMEMBER THE "BLOW" OUT CLINTON HAD IN TEXAS. IT IS CLEAR NOW THAT THE ONLY WAY CLINTON CAN WIN IS IF SHE CHEATS – AND FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN, NOTHING IS BELOW HER. JUST THE KIND OF PRESIDENT WE WANT RIGHT? OH, EXCUSE ME, WE ALREADY HAVE ONE LIKE THAT NOW, WHY NOT JUST KEEP HIM.

    ARE YOU ALL NUTS

    7 VOTES....7 POINTS

    WHAT THE HELL IS THE DIFFERENCE A WIN IS A WIN

    YOU ALL BETTER WAIT TILL THE BALLOTS ARE VARIFIED BEFORE YOUR LAME BRAINS GO INTO REVERSE.

    THEY DO CHECK THE VOTES WHEN ITS THIS CLOSE BUT IF YOU ALL WERE AS SMART AS YOU THINK SILENCE WOULD BE THE KEY WORD HERE

    Hey, folks, you all do realize that those 7 votes means 1 extra superdelegate (Pilar Lujan), right? Mr. Lujan pledged to cast his superdelegate vote to the Guamanian popular vote winner.

    Sooo... that's +3 superdelegates from Guam for Obama, 1 for Clinton.

    And you also know that 1 superdelegate = aproximately 25,000 voters, right?

    Thank you, Guam!

  15. Wow!

    CNN, kindly start magnifying the positive things that are happening!

    Obama won Guam with the number of perfection :-). This is how you win the elections! Wuhuuuu..thank you to the 7 people who voted for Obama!

    Cowboy Jack- Obama wasn't expected to win Guam by a 2 figure digit. Hillary was but she couldn't pull it out. Hillary and Bill will not vacation there anymore, because they did not let Billary win. Obama won and did even show his face, but Hillary and Bill stop by to say vote for Hillary okay.

    .7 VOTES huh ? I would check those votes .
    Whats with Baracks supporters constantly playing the RACE CARD ..
    Rev Wright did and still is.. The Clyburn guy from S. Carolina is still doing it , and everytime one of his supporters are on tv thats all you hear out of their mouths ...
    The entire time they are playing the RACE CARD , they are saying others are doing it, which is untrue .... and is nothing but republican tactics ...
    I can only hope and pray that many others eyes are opened .....

    Hillary Clinton is the only one who is capable of cleaning up this unbelievable mess Bush and the Republicans have made of our country and financial well being .. BUSH isnt finished spending either ..
    Hes asking for millions and millions for FOREIGN FOOD AID , which could be spent here in the GULF COAST / NEW ORLEANS area for the victims of KATRINA , and if thats not enough hes asking for 80 billion dollars MORE for his OIL WAR he has SPENT somewhere near 1 TRILLION so far ...Why does he love spending our tax money in foreign countries , it doesnt make sense when so many Americans need their country ..
    Barack is Bush is McCain ....

    Hillary Clinton

  18. Wow!

    Guam superdelegates, kindly endorse for the winner :-) ..thanks!

    Looks like Guam has spoken.... Shows the both of them are equally worthy of the presidency

    It's seven votes... 2264 for Obama and 2257 for Clinton. It's not such a significant win for Obama— it's a tie when you look at the consequence. Two votes for Obama, two for Clinton.

    I know many complaints have been filed against the Obama campaign in the past for cheating the caucus process by bullying people around and purposely delaying the voting process causing many of Hillary's supporters who couldn't stay late cause of work or cause they have to go to their families not to be able to participate.

    Hey CNN, why are you not posting my comments. Is this not a free speech country anymore, or maybe not...
