    This just shows you how the caucuses in other states would have been much closer if the people voted in secret!!! He only won by 7 votes in his own backyard!!!!

    There's definitely no momentum out of that win!!!!

    Actually concerned citizen, it's 7 VOTES. There will certainly be a recount and provisional ballots or absentee ballots may not even have been included yet.

    Fox news and CNN are working overtime to keep Hillary in this race. Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are fighting with the ultra right Jewish community to push Hillary into office! As long as there is a war to fight, and a country to force our beliefs on, people like Hillary will succeed! I am an independent voter that voted for Ross Perot, and Ronald Reagan, and even Bill Clinton once. But I am an independent that understands that we impeached the Clinton's once! That Hillary and Bill have a very dark pas,. darker than Obama's skin. Remember America that Obama is half white too! If anybody can unite this country it is a man that grew up with black skin in a white family. His identity was a issue for him all his life! He knows first hand why we need to put racism behind us once and for all! Just listen to the children of this new world we live in, they have no clue what the sixties were like! NONE of them are racist unless their parents taught them to hate! CNN and Fox are doing their best to keep Hillary in this! She and her old Washington friends are going to try and rob this nation of this great opportunity to unite this country. Turn on CNN right now and they have nothing on Guam, they are showing PA results.

    CNN must be out of touch. How does CNN come up with 7 votes, and the AP come up with 203?

    Obama wins Guam b y 203 votes.

    I'm an Independent who is weary of Washingtonian tactics–McClinton's holiday gas tax fairy-tale proposals are pro-corporate America. McClinton owes ALOT to their true constituents: corporate America. So glad to hear Obama wins in Guam! He's a true leader!

    It's a caucus, and Guam has similar demographics with Hawaii.
    THIS IS ALREADY A WIN FOR HILLARY.
    SHE'S A FIGHTER.
    AND SHE FOUGHT HARD.
    Give her the credit.
    Comparing Guam's caucus with Hawii, this shows a big sign that the tide has turned for her.

    Why can't Hillary close the deal in Guam?
    She is unelectable!!!

    I agree that CNN continues to twist words against Obama, from Lou Dobbs saying Obama called struggling white Americans red necks, as he acted as though he couldn't find the right words, to the network saying Obama won by 7 votes in Guam. Nobody can beat up this pathetic network for not choosing words incorrectly, but they'll jump all over a candidate and spin it into meaningless headlines for weeks as they promote themselves as a "News" network to America.

    The Obama supporters will stop whining for a while about 10 percent or 9 percent ok a win is a win , 7 votes extra if you want tto call it that.

    According to Hillary Clinton and I quote ' a win is a win' whether it is by one vote. Obama has won Guam and will win always. It is time for the old woman to step aside and allow Obama take on McCain squarely.

    7 votes. clinton and obama got the same number of delegates from Guam.

    Clinton 08!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If not, McCain 08!

    Obama won by seven votes, very sad, as Obama spent money to have an office on Guam. Clinton did not have an office on the island.

    Hillary Clinton '08 & '12

    Pathetic that even with an office and being from the "Pacific" Obama could not pull off a better victory.

    People are finally waking up to the fade of Obama.
