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.

    Democrats are still on opposite sides of at about 50/50 give or take. We are in a battle of the century...

    I am so sad about the way the media has taken sides with Rev. Wright issue. I have never seen a whole President of America lying on TV than Mr Bush has and yet nobody questions him about it. Now listen to what John McCann said that the Iraq war was for purely oil. I think the American people are smart enough not to destroy a candidate whose aim is to bridge the divide in the america and the world. Look the world is tired of these lies by Senator Clinton and John McCann about this. The media has a role to play for America to get a better person for president than somebody who will further divide America and the world.

    Guam, where the minimum wage laws don't apply to US citizens thanks to Nancy Pelosi. Now they are in the spotlight, bring up this issue!

    Since Obama is leading, Guam will be of little consequence. Were Hillary leading – it would be yet another sign of Hillary's electability ignoring that Guam residents have no vote in the general elections.

    And the headline will read Obama favored to carry Guam wins just another caucus state by narrow margin. And if a tree falls in Guam will anyone know it?

    Apparently Hillary though it was important enough to pour campaign money that she doesn't have into that caucus state. A win is a win right Hillbag?

    . . . The word in Washington is that there are only a about 100 seats
    left on the Obama train, so next week every delegate will be scrambling
    to endorse Senator Obama.

    Even Guamites know that it is time for a change.
    It is time to turn off the TV, disregard media's biased reporting, and schemes. It is time to look at each candidate thoroughly by ourselves, and base our judgments on our guts, and not on the idiotic analysis from CNN, MSNBC, "Fallacy" News etc

    Dear sirs,
    I am writting to you because I believe that this president race is TOTALLY unfair! Mr.Obama, has a lead not due to his experience, of which he has none, but souly because Oparh winfrey swore she would buy his president place with whatever she had to give!!!! I
    totally agree that he( Obama) would not be where he is if he was white! Mrs. Clinton has 18 years of experience, she has proved over and over again that she is FOR the people. A gas tax break, YES, Obama NO???? Some thing so small yet would mean alot to the american people and yet Obama doesn't even want to do that, So what will happen when it comes to something large????
    We the people have the right to have a leader that is for us and not for themselves! We need a

    Sincerly ,

    That's more than a 10% lead. Hillary's lead in PA was less than 10%, down from polls touting a 20% lead, and you all called it huge!

    You are so into discounting smaller contests and using large ones as momentum busters for Obama. How are you going to play 31 contest wins for Obama vs. 15 for Clinton? Only the 15 are important states?

    Keep the results coming. Go Obama

    I must be realy stupid. I have been under the impression that Hilary or McCain could not possibly be president if elected, this summer. So please tell me how they can have a gas holiday to help my pocketbook this summer? Obama makes the most sense in the long range planning which he can do if elected in November.

    If you're a Hillary fan then Guam won't count... She doesn't believe in Caucuses... unless she was winning more of them... I hope it all ends this tuesday but i have a fear they will split. If Hillary wins by 9% it's a landslide but if Obama wins by 9% it's to close to call... go figure.

    who cares... no, I don't say that because I think if Obama is leading it doesn't matter. I am saying this because we all know the caucuses are stupid and undemocratic. FACT. If it wasn't for caucuses Hillary would have put this away a long, long time ago.

    and this they call a democracy... shame
