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.

    Amazing closing ad for Obama on nbc news site...How I admire this man's courage, honesty and ability to inspire. I hope he prevails because America can not solve anything with the old fighting ways represented by McCain and Clinton.

    CNN, why not highlight Guam's map, at least, instead of rev. Wright's picture? Guam and its people deserves more than the man.

    Hillary should have ran republican, she was one in the beginning and now she is hiding herself as a democrat with republican values.
    She would have given McCain a better run for the republican candidacy.

    No matter what happens in Guam, Hillary is still our best choice as our next Commander in Chief. Hillary has incredible intelligence and phenominal experience to offer our Nation. She will stand up to whomever approaches her with bravery and courage. I want Hillary on my team. Obama does not have the qualifications to run our country at its most crucial time in history.

    Who is elitist and out of touch?

    Hillary saying to Bill O'Reilly, "Rich people, God bless us. We deserve all the opportunities to make sure our country and our blessings continue until the next generation."

    Formerly for Hillary, now....

    Clinton can't deliver on her promises!! She promised Buffalo NY 200,000 jobs if we elected her ... she's been in and we've netted -30,000 jobs and another plant (American Axle – Tonawanda) announced it has to close!!! Multiply this love by the size of the country!!!

    I Can not believe that you and other news medias continue to dominate your air waves and web sites about Rev Wright your continued effort to destroy this man is very obvious. This needs to stop and put something else on people do not want to continue to see this any more. Stop This! Stop!

    The super delegates right now are 2-1 in favor of Clinton with 4 super votes uncommitted(2 delegates)... with a 2-2 in pledged... its 4-3 right now in favor of Clinton... That leaves any comination from HIllary taking 6-3 to Obama taking 5-4... Guess we will see soon enough..

    HRC is done – this race is over...everyone know this.. What remains to be seen is exactly how much damage she's willing to do for her own ego's sake. Based on her behaviour so far, quite a bit. Shameful.

    She has lost Guam! She will lose Indiana to the surprise of many and we all know she loses in North Carolina and Oregon.

    What now ..John McCain. This isn't about the ramblings of an out of touch pastor...this is about whites wanting a white candidate at all cost, ...sad, sad, America..

    The ObamaRama doesn't like Hillary's gas tax reduction. But what is his plan? He has no plan-this is a man who voted "present" over 100 times. He has no conviction–he's just another politician who will move into the White House with all his cronies.

    If the people are stupid enough to support a phoney like Hillary who consistantly lies to their face they will be sorry in November.Besides which,even if she won all the remaining states at 70% she still can't win.The superdelegates are not going to give it to her.This race is only being allowed to continue to register new voters and no other reason.Common sense.

    Obama is not electable. If he is the nominee, democrats will lose the house, the senate, and the President too! If Hillary is nominated, democrats will certainly retain the congress, the senate, and most likely win the President too!

    I am a Republican who will vote for Barack Obama. NO way do I want to live under 4-8 years of Clintonism. He showed the American people he had no morals when he was Pres., I wonder what HC would do to get back at him?
    GO BARACK OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    More votes, more delegates, and more contests. The sun is setting on the Clinton dynasty. Too bad so many of you are too stuck in the past to catch the green flash.

    Cheers to Guam

    Posted by jujub: "Just thinkā€¦if Hillary Clinton had not voted for the war, she would not have to work so hard to convince us she has great judgment."

    In 2004 when he was running for the U.S. Senate, Senator Obama was asked how he would have voted had he actually been a U.S. Senator. His answer: "I don't know."
    Also in 2004 Senator Obama said that he did not think there was "much difference" between himself and President Bush on the war.

    to Lorna NY: I know. But when I see them commenting on Rev Wright I change the channel. I can see bringing it up to begin with. But going on and on and on and on is ridiculous. Who would sit and listen to that? Even his opponents have nothing to gain by hearing it. it. We have heard it all and there is no there there! They need to move on. Maybe to what some experts say about gas prices and pandering.
