Early Guam returns show slight Obama lead

(CNN) - Early vote returns from Saturday's Guam Democratic caucuses show Barack Obama with a small but early lead over presidential rival Hillary Clinton, although the bulk of the votes in the U.S. territory have yet to be counted.

With 2 out of 21 villages reporting, Obama won 188 votes to 105 for Clinton. Guam Democratic Party officials told CNN Saturday morning that the vote tabulation is ongoing but will take several more hours to complete.

Polls closed in Guam at 8 p.m. local time, or 6 a.m. eastern time. Four delegate votes are at stake in this event.

    To President bush and Congress. Show the American people that we do matter. I vote to ask Mr.Obama to resign his postion on the U.S Senate,

    He has shown conduct unbecoming a U.S senator
    He has shown disloyalty to America
    I could add more, but I think that covers everything.

    Please drop out Hillary, you can't win, is this what you're going to say to the "superdelegates", "guys I know Obama won more delegates, I know Obama won more states, I know he has more pupolar votes but I'm better than him". DOES THIS MAKES ANY SENSE TO ANYONE?

    Folks, please be objective and look at how the 2 candidates have run their campaigns which is what really matters. If you are going to hold Rev. Wright against Obama, then you need to hold Bill Clinton against Hillary. After all, she has knowingly stayed with him despite his numerous affairs. How does that make sense. If you say that Bill doesn't matter, then you have to apply the same logic for obama – wright doesn't matter either.

    I've researched both candidates and Obama is the better choice. Hillary is telling the people in Indiana just what she wants us to hear like she thinks we are so dumb that we cannot tell the truth from a lie. The gas tax promise and her other promises are all empty, just like our gas tanks and hillary is not going to fill either one.

    Barack has been straight with us and told us what we need to hear rather than what we want to hear. That's the sign of a leader.

    Why are you always putting Obama down. CNN websites carry a hell of lot more headlines on Hillarious the liar than for an honest and trustworthy chap like Obama You should rename CNN. May I suggest you rename it HILLBILLY CABLE NEWS NETWORK and let the WOLFMAN run it. He is so prejudiced against OBAMA.
    By the way Hillarious would say Guam doesnt count

    Hey Wolfman why are you not reporting on PAUL vs Clinton?

    Well let's see... They called Pennsylvania for Billary Clampet at only 8% reported. As Gary stated it was 64% Obama – 36% Biilary at 10% reported and ...uh... not called yet. I don't want to hear anything about population, Guam is so unimportant they don't care enough, it's only four delegates... who cares. Tons of our military personell are stationed there. Their vote counts. C'mon CNN. Call that little island for Obama. Project another victory for Obama. AND YES BILLARY FANS, if she won Guam she'd be running her mouth about it. SO HEAR OURS. HAHAHAAA. Guam = that many more delegates you can't get. Hearty HA HAAA!! See if you can scratch up any more desperate last ditch effort tactics, Billary. What's next the bathroom sink? Or will you use your abilities to "reach across the aisle" to team up with the republicans again. Yeah, "reach across the aisle" my behind! You'll ruin your own party and your own political future just to try to win now. What a barracuda!

    Both Hillary and Ob on tv Sunday morning for an hour. Lets put the bias's aside and see which one knows the facts and looks more presidential for real stuff. Hope doesn't pay the bills. Unless you are hoping you'll get more handouts.
    Boggles the mind what some people think a president can do.

    The truth be known Hillary doesn't care about all of the states or the people she has won. Just like Michigan and Florida they really don't matter. She did agree their votes didn't matter. Hillary doesn't care about the people in North Carolina or Indiana, either. If she doesn't win she will say they really didn't matter. She only cares about Hillary!!! Where are the list of people and countries that donated to the Clinton Library. I'm sure this comment won't get posted. Most of mine don't. I enjoy reading your comments.
    Yes We Can.

    Indiana and North Carolina please put us out of our misery. End the democratic race on Tuesday. The math doesn't add up for Hillary and the DNC and superdelegates will not go against the popular and delegate vote. Please follow the action of Guam and lets start a sensible debate with John McCain for the elections.
