    CNN is being Pro-Hillary so that she can win on Tuesday to keep the primary going in other for them (CNN) to have things to report on.

    Obama wins by 7 points, NOT by 7 votes.

    Anyway, CNN and the rest of the media never right on Poll, when Obama fully win next Tuesday , he will be the last one laughing as well as the rest ofr America.

    For over a week, CNN keeps The Wright LOGO at the top od the Politics Home Page to remind people about Wright issue. I thinks Hillary's supporter gave the big money to do it.

    I know you won't post it, but you get the message anyway.

    Whats WRONG with CNN? Obama WON Guam, but Hilary's banner on front page?. Grow up CNN. Stop being biased and un-ethical.

    Go Obama and disprove CNN.

    If it is 7% not 7 votes CNN should be ashamed and print the correct information.

    So, for all you Obamaniacs who cried "7 points, not 7 votes," heres the real story:

    "With ALL 21 precincts reporting, Obama finished with 2,264 votes, or 50.1 percent. Sen. Hillary Clinton got 2,257 votes, or 49.9 percent."

    It really is just 7 votes. So much for "making it clear for the superdelegates". Ha ha ha ha ha. You Obama kool-aid drinkers are soooooo funny (and kind of filled with a lot of anger, if you read enough posts ).

    Good luck imploding in November!

    This is so cool! It takes a village..counting village by village, and the end result is an even split.
    Two good candidates and it took little Guam to epitomize the entire race for the Democratic nomination!
    We all have to sit back and take a deep breath and have a little chuckle at this one...

    2,264 votes to 2,257. It's 7 votes. Nothing wrong with the headline. Check your facts.

    Seeing that BO has won other caucuses by 60-70%......THIS IS A GREAT MOMENTUM BOOSTER FOR HILLARY!!!!!!!!! ALSO, GUAM IS NEAR THE PHILLIPINES........HE SHOULD HAVE HANDILY WON THIS CAUCUS!!!
    YAY, GO HILLARY!!!!!!! SHE IS CLEARLY GAINING THE MOMENTUM!!!!!

    BTW...Obama supporters who are getting really desperate....The guy/chick who doctored the "War Room" video better get a really good lawyer....:) I really would be worried if I were you! And the people who are putting up the bogus info smearing Hillary with the fraudulent peter paul crud, you better be careful as well.......:)...this stuff has a way of coming back and biting you.....:)

    Wow, only 7 votes! Meanwhile, I thought I kept hearing how Guam was supposed to be a big Obama blowout? Apparently not. LOL

    Come on CNN, 7 points or 7 votes ????

  18. Clinton Overperforms in Guam! :)

    7 vote dfference: Sounds like a tie to me. Obama was always supposed to win Guam given his status as a fellow islander. Clinton did an incredible by closing the gap and tieing him 50 / 50.

    BREAKING NEWS:
    Barack defeated Hillary in Guam despite coming off from a win in PA. Political pundits are asking: why can't Hillary close the deal?

    She is unelectable!!!

    Concern Citizen,

    No, he won by 7 votes. 2,264 to 2,257. I personally think it's hysterical. He was set to win big there...maybe this is a glimpse of what we can expect in NC on Tuesday.

    Congratulations to Senator Obama! The votes are in and the polls are closed, there is no need for a recount; Senator Obama has won Guam, just like he will win in Indiana and in North Carolina. Let's face it, Senator Obama is the better candidate; he brings youth, education, intelligence, and he sincerely believe these United States are ready for change, from the bottom up. Listen to him, give him the opportunity to make good on his campaign, this country gave President George Bush eight years. His presidency have the country in a war, that we should have never entered, that have taken over 4,000 lives, gas prices are skyrocketing each and every week, homes are being lost to foreclosures, jobs are being lost, and food prices are outrageously high. Vote for Senator Obama, "Yes We Can".

    Does anyone else find it odd that:
    *with 95% of the votes in it was 53%-Obama to 47% Clinton
    *with 100% of the votes in it was 50%-50% ?
    *CNN always predicts the outcome with less than 10% of the votes in, but in Guam they couldn't (even when 95% of the votes were already in).
    *CNN and other news networks not talking about anything negative about Clinton.
    *We are supposed to believe that there is a strong connection between rev. wright and Obama -–BUT---– there isn't a strong connection between Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton!

    STUPIDITY FROM THE NETWORKS AND CLINTONS – GET OVER YOUR BIASES AND MOVE ON!

    The difference between his "win" is that he was supposed to TROUNCE her in a caucus. 7 votes is a joke of a win...
