    I am surprised Hillary hasn't called for a recount yet. Or may be not. It's only a caucus. Does not count.

    Hillary will claim a tie in this caucas. Ooppps...I forgot. Hillary said caucases don't mean anything which is why she all but ignored all small states that held caucases. Talk about disenfranchising voters!

    Yes, another win for the honest one!

    Why doesn't anybody talk about the oil in Iraq! The U.S.gov. should take it and use the money to pay for the war and put the oil into U.S. This would lower the price of oil in half. This would shock the economy and move us out of recession!

    The most important count really is how many more votes Mr. Obama will need to get to the magic number os 2024.

    Step up to the plate IN and NC. Lets do this for the democratic party.

    If Hillary had won by 7 votes, she would have called it a double-digit victory.

    Hillary will NEVER get elected President. If the super delegates choose Hillary over Barack even though he has more elected delegates, then the Democratic Party will be split for decades to come. Both Bill and Hillary cannot be trusted. Bill stared at us in the eyes and flatly lied that “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, M. L….” As for Hillary, she made up the Bosnia “sniper story” and kept telling it until she got caught. Also, why did Bill and Hillary remain married? Not for love for sure. Hillary criticized Barack for not leaving his church. Fair enough, but why did Hillary stay with Bill who humiliated her for decades, sleeping with all kinds of women? We know that over 50% of marriages in the US end in divorce for various reasons. Most women in Hillary’s case (with Bill’s perpetual public womanizing) would have left.

    CNN = Clinton News Network?! All you Obama supporters have only been saying this lately because finally the media has, to some extent, decided to start picking on Obama, too.

    Everyone knows of the anti-Clinton bias that pervaded the media just a month ago. Someone has to hold Mr. Obama accountable. While I don't expect a corporate news outlet to be perfect in that regard, I don't expect them to so blatantly support one candidate, as CNN had done with Obama previously. It's a welcome change – to borrow Fox News's terminology, "fair and balanced" nitpicking on the part of the newsmedia.

    So Clinton wins PE by 9,4 votes????

    7% or 7 votes, they each get 2 delegates. 5 additional super delegates will choose who they'll endorse.

    The media is owned by corporations who also happen to run our government, thats why we are constantly being distracted with non-issues.
    If Americans want to end the war, and change the economy, then you had better start supporting Obama, because Clinton is "one of them," and McCain is filthy rich, he doesn't care about middle income people, let alone the poor, and we'll be at war for the next 100 years or until Iran drops a nuclear bomb on us, whichever comes first.

    Obama now has 31 wins to Clinton's 15, and of course, leads by # of popular votes.

    Hey Paulo, what would you be saying if Clinton won by seven votes? Where's her momentum? Just days ago everyone thought Clinton had a lock on Guam.

    You say you can't fool everybody all the time, but it looks like she can fool you as long as she wants. Guess you're excited about her promised gas tax pander, eh?
