    Like Hillary says, "A Win is a Win!" Add another win to Obam's win column. Add another loss to Hillary's loss column.

    Wow, Senator Obama winning them really big states, eh territories?

    Let's see him get off the hot seat with Tim Russert.

    Here's hoping that Russert doesn't do a "Keith Olbermann" type of interview – lame and shameless!

    The momentum is great for Obama. If he can reach people across the globe. He is major influence in other countries as well. He will go on to win Indiana/N. Carolina.

    It time to drop out Hillary.

    Didi you forget to mention:

    Note: these are unofficial, uncertified results as tabulated by the Democratic Party of Guam. The DPG also noted a high number of spoiled ballots in Dededo.

    I have a feeling Obama will win Indiana by a slim slim margin also, Maybe like 2,500 votes.

    sounds like a tie, Right?

    I guess this counts as another "state" won by Obama. Along with Utah and the entire black south I am sure the GOP is really frightened by his resume of "victories". Come on Indiana and North Carolina, give the democrats some hope for the White House and vote for Hillary. Obama is on the verge permanently sinking the democrats' ship. Hillary or McCain '08

  18. Shame....

    Well this is EXCELLENT News for Hillary Clinton since she said only 'white states' matter in this elections.

    I believe she mentioned just today that she forgot to take her name off ballot in Guam then asked for a revote in case she won by less than 1 point to prove, even with her name off the ballot she could win 'non-white states and territory.'

    Obama winning by 7 points only supports her case, only white states understand she should win ALL primaries and caucuses and she will now call Obama to demand he turns over his 2 Guam delegates to 'make the game fair."

    The Obamamaniacs are going to use this to say that the tide is turning back into Obama's favor. His 7 vote win is out of 4521 votes. That's with his advertising in Guam, having his half sister go there to campaign for him, and also opening up an office in the largest village in Guam, Dededo. Hillary was only able to have radio ads and a few print ads.

    A win is a win

    Operation Chaos = CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, ABC, CBS and Rush.
    They are all in it together. It's good for ratings...

    People let's boycott TV and Radio until May 20th. They will change the coverage and stop reporting on a race that's over.

    According to Hillary, a win is a win no matter how small it is.

    By the way, Barak need to show some strength.
