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.

    tell me again why Guam matters?
    Last time I checked they are only useful because we have a military base their, and military votes anyway.
    Just another way for the rats to take away the vote from the ordinary American.
    Its obvious that the typical person from Guam doesn't relate to the ordinary American.
    Anyways, todays latest poll shows Hillary's lead increasing nationally
    bye bye Obama

    Obama did vote for the gas tax break two years ago..two things, gas prices were alot lower then and also he voted against an extension of the first vote because it was not working. He wanted to see if it would work first. It did not. Now he is voting against it. Get is straight. There is nothing wrong with that. Also, all these bent out of shape people who are going to vote republican in the fall if their candidate does not get the nomination need to wake up! Even though I am pro-life, do you females realize that John McCain's administration will most likely take away your choice?? Don't be stupid out of anger. That is just ridiculous. If Obama does not get the nomination, I simply won't vote in the fall...I would never vote for four more years of Bush out of spite. Think beyond yourself.

    tax relief is just a temporary solution that in the end isn`t going to resolve the big problem. America have a big oil depedence problem.
    obama is correct! America have to find new solutions to energy problem. Not just a relief tax that helps in the polls, but don `t resolve the problem.

    Lets do this Hillary, we know we can't win this time, so lets damage obama, so you can run again in four years.

    Where is Obama's momentum when he can barely hold the lead in Guam? Answer, he doesn't have momentum. It is frustrating that the truth about him didn't come out sooner but the media darling was protected by the media. Hillary 08.

    So many of the posts express condescention towards Guam. "Even Guamians know..." "Who cares about Guam?" Etc. How shameful. The people of Guam are your equals and mine, too.

    Anything to cover the stink of the last two months of scandals and downfalls.

    IN and NC will show how unelectable Obama is.

    Hillary 2008!!!

    Regardless of the outcome, I think we can all agree the best part of the Guam result will be - NO EXIT POLLS!

    I am so tired of news coverage that implies that only white people's votes count. (I am white myself, by the way.) I also understand the political pros' concern about extrapolating income, age, race, gender, and other patterns to the general election - not that this applies to Guam anyway since they don't vote then.

    But try explaining all that to a wide-eyed third or fifth grader (white or black) who is trying to make sense of the coverage to date. They are not getting a good message from this obsession with the "color" of each vote, and which colors are worth more.

    I'm refreshed by a contest where we will only know how many votes went to each candidate, and the votes count just as much to the media regardless of who cast them. That's the America I recognize.

    The ellection campaign isn't fair I gess.

    Obama has to fight two oponents, not one.

    The Clintons can present them selves at two places at the same time, Bill and Hillary, Obama has to do it on his own.

    The more I read comments from Hillary supporters, the more it becomes crystal clear why she is leading amongst the least educated in the nation! Soooooo very, very sad

    That a fake like Obama has made it this far is proof that the dumbing down of America is working.
