Obama continues to lead in Guam

(CNN) - Barack Obama continues to lead Hillary Clinton in Guam's Democratic caucuses as local party officials work into the early morning tallying votes from Saturday's event.

With 7 out of 19 villages reporting, Obama leads with 497 votes (55.3 percent) to 401 votes for Clinton (44.7 percent).

Guam caucus officials merged some village returns together, reducing the total number of villages from 21 to 19.

    Nice job Barack! Let's reverse this "momentum". Hillary is disfavored even amongst U.S. territories.

    Obama will win all of the rest of the primaries to put Hillary and her gas tax holiday to bed for good.

    Go Obama!

    Way to go Obama. People of all walks of life understand you and Believe in your ability. We won't let Rev Wright, and Hilary McCain Clinton stop you. We need our bridges to be safe. I drive on them everyday. I don't want to die at the poor judgments of Hilary and McCain. Our bridges collapse once and we have a lot of work to be done in keeping them safe. What about creating jobs? What will happen when we have no money to maintain our bridges? The Answer -jobs are lost.

    You can google anything, it does not have to be true! I cannot believe what can be put on youtube. Larry Sinclair is right up there with PaulvClinton. If the Obama-bots want to continue their blog of lies so can the Clintionites....The lies are plentiful on some google sites..

    I hope N. Carolinians and the Hoosiers are as smart and perceptive as the citizens of Guam. (Dont know what they are called.)
    I never thought that my feelings for someone could turn from sympathy and pity (The Monica Lewinsky scandal) to utter disgust, in the space of a few years but there you have it.

    Fresh questions are being raised in the wake of Hillary's much-publicized comments questioning why Bush failed to stop Chinese investors from moving Magnequench to China and closing the Northwest Indiana plant.

    If the sale of the company to Chinese investors was going to jeopardize national security, why did President Bill Clinton's administration approve it in 1995?

    Says Hillary.......
    "Magnequench made the sophisticated magnets needed to guided "smart bombs." Today, bomb-makers have to buy the magnets from the Chinese."

    Kevin Griffis, Indiana spokesman for U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, said Hillary Clinton's comments about Magnequench were part of "Washington game-playing" in which "people are willing to say anything to win an election."

    Can we get beyond sound bites and REALLY vote on issues??

    Ten points is a "small" lead? When Clinton won Pennsylvania by 9 points you called it a big win. Go figure.

    You guys are a little behind, Guam Pacific Daily News now reporting Obama at 719 votes (53.3%) after 10 districts counted; Clinton at 629 (47.7%).

    Makes we wonder why it takes 9 hours to count 1348 ballots LOL

    Guam knows it is time for change, and Obama is the one to do just that.
