NEW YORK (CNN) –- As Super Tuesday approached, many political observers suggested Barack Obama would run strong in states that hold caucuses rather than primaries -– the kind of contests that tend to attract only the most committed liberal party activists.

So far, that prediction seems right on target.

Obama has earned victories in all of the caucus states that have so far been called: Colorado, Kansas, North Dakota and Idaho.

CNN has not called a winner in the remaining caucus states, Minnesota and Alaska.

    In 2001 Amaricans voted for 9/11 and in 2004 Americans voted confilict in Iraq. now its the time for Americans to change. and get new ideas, now the whole world support Obama that means he has the chance to re-unite the whole world rather than brings back Hillary Clinton the one who supported the genocide in Rwanda in 1994 to abuse the Americans that they don't care about the humanity . please don't bring these people back in the white House.

    These elections is not for Americans only its for the whole world if the American can not be secure ,that means the whole word can not be secure.

    Please American help us give Obama chance to change American and the whole world. thank you !

    This response is to Eric. Your statement to Sen. Obama's "our time has come, our movement has come" refers to the nation as a whole. Remember, his message is about change and inclusiveness. This reference is not just for one group of people, but for everyone to work together and to leave the 'old way' of doing things in the past where it belongs.
