Showdown in Dededo

(CNN) - The outcome of the Guam Democratic presidential caucuses will come down to the votes of one village, Dededo, the territory's largest voting precinct.

With 20 of 21 precincts reporting, Barack Obama leads the contest with 1,951 votes (52.7 percent), compared to 1,748 votes (47.2 percent) for Hillary Clinton.

Roughly 1,400 votes remain to be tallied in Dededo, about 27 percent of all votes cast in this party-run primary.

At stake are Guam's four pledged delegate votes, which will be allocated to the candidates in proportion to the percentage of the vote won once all the votes are counted.

    I cannot wait till Tuesday. With Hillary winning Indiana and Obama maybe sqeaking out a win in NC, I am curious to hear the spin the Obama people will make.
    He is bleeding.

    Looks like another 50/50 split on delegates. Go Hillary, your closing in NC. Where he was expected to win easily?

  3. Shame....

    That’s great news for Hillary.

    Now she can parachute into Guam Capital to claim ‘Mission Accomplished’ right before she tells the natives how her Daddy rowed in a tiny boat all the way from America to pick coconuts and spend time with the natives.

    I hear she promised full US Citizenship for the natives; if this was so important why didn’t her husband do this when he was President? Oh, that doesn’t matter because the Clintons are brand new each and every day because Hillary is like a cat, many lives and many lies.

    Another "big" win for Obama where it matters (not).

    I know Guam is not that significant in the "big" scheme of things, but I can see CNN is keeping it's usual low profile, due to the fact that Obama is winning. If it were reverese, and Clinton was ahead, what do you bet you'd have a big banner with that as your headline. I'm so sick and tired of CNN and it's biasness.

    I don't know why anyone votes for Obama. As a political Independent, the only vote I give him is the vote of..... NO CONFIDENCE.

    Whether Obama wins or loses you all will find away to make it mute for him.I thought America had come so far,but if the bias media coverage is any example of where we are,pitiful.

    How is CNN going to spin this! News Flash.. Rev. Wright stuffed ballots in Guam! Hillary treated unfair in Guam. And this one for sure. Obama wins non critical Guam. Or if she pulls it off, and she was suppose to win Guam, News Flash.. Hillary continues comeback with critical win in Guam! CNN The Clinton News Network.

    Now be sincere. We know to whom the votes of Dededo will go to. Que: Name starts with an O and ends with an A and has a B and M inbetween seperated by another A. No sniper fires, or goldilocks here.

    Mrs. C knows how to lie, how to cheat, how to work 24-7, how to say whatever is necessary, how to morph into a Republican before your very eyes, and how to win. Mr. O doesn't. Politics ain't beanbag. Watch Hillary win! She will eat McCain for breakfast. Hillary - America's iron lady!

    Why is CNN still not declaring Obama the Winner. If Hillary was ahead it would be declared by now. The double standards that prevalent in the media in regards to Senator Obama and Senator Clinton is unfair but totally believeable. You report on Rev. Wright while our soldiers are dying daily in Iraq. However, you say nothing about the pending investigation Senator Clinton is currently in regards donation abuse/fraud.

    With 1400 votes left to count do you really think all of the remaining votes will be for Clinton? No, you don't but being biased is second nature to all of you at CNN.

    Clinton's loss might be just because of the sniper fire she encountered in '95 when visiting Guam.

    ooooo Guam! Well Hillary should definitely pull out of the race now, because Obama is leading in Guam! Forget about Oregon and Kentucky and Indiana......The funny thing is, all these Obama cheerleaders are saying "this is SUCH a huge win! He beat her in Guam!" When in reality if the result stays this close, both candidates will get 4 pledged delegates. So call it an Obama win, call it a Clinton loss, Me...I'm calling it what it should be, A TIE.

    HUGE WIN!!!!

    Obama blew Clinton away....This should be all over MSNBC, CBS< CBS< CNN....What a huge margin......

    Clinton has no legs.....she has been sent to the shed........

    No, it wont be huge news. CNN rather have a picture of R. Wright up and talk about him.

    Obama, keep doing what your doing, the majority of the American people are with you despite the media's attempt to decide this race...

    It is amazing to me that the media keeps Rev Wright on the news daily but, issues like the investigation of the Clintons and their fundraising scandals with Peter Paul, that the WVWR's investigation going on right now in NC. Why is the media biased? Why are you not telling the American people the truth??? Rev. Wright is not running for president of the United States of American.

    Hafa Dai Guam,
    I am one of those that have democrat election fatigue and yes I am a democrat. Hillary's nose just keep growing and growing with her lies and people with common sense are seeing right thru her.
    She and Bill believe they have an entitlement to the white house and will do anything and promise anything like professional career Washingtonians they are. Who they think they are kidding?
    Bill lost my respect with the VERY LOW politics he is playing on Behalf of his Wife. Get real if we elect Hillary we will deserve everything that comes with the baggage. Monica, Donors to Bills Library Issues and plenty of Sniper fire hillary won't be able to Duck.

    Vote for Hillary to save the democratic party. Vote for Obama to give the next four years to McCain.

    Just think...if Hillary Clinton had not voted for the war, she would not have to work so hard to convince us she has great judgment.
