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.

    Who says the people of Guam aren't smart! It may only be a few delegates gained here but everyone counts. Gee, with 4 delegates up for grabs and Obama leading, would Hillary call that "gaining momentum?" Hopefully the people of North Carolina and Indiana will be equally as smart and support Obama...our best chance for change, truthfulness, sincereity, honesty and positive leadership. It's time for no more of the same old crap and it will take someone "new" and "refreshing" to make that happen. Yes we can!

    I hope HRC wins in Guam. It's funny how everyone says how Obama is for change. Really how much change can Obama do in the first four years in office if he is elected. Everything he wants change will have to go thru the house and senate before he even sees anything?

    It will take him four years just to figure out who's who. Oh wait a minute, thats right, he'll have all those clinton traders working for him now. Makes you wonder... those are the same advisors who were advising the clintons. They helped the HRC in the past giving her advice how do you think she made her decisions, she counted on her advisors and they all failed her.

    Is the Guam primary a caucus state? I thought so. Is the general election done in caucus style? No. I didn't think so. Nothing further needs to be said.

  12. BringBackTheKennedy's

    To put it in simple terms, we need to bring back Camelot. An administration similar to the leadership of the Kennedy administration would be good for the US. Barack is our best chance of this. He is stern and a man of his convictions. Stephen Colbert thinks Michelle is like Jackie O and I agree.

    An administration with strong family values as the Obama's is crucial to turning this country around. I will admit, I did vote W in '04 and that was a mistake. We need someone to moderate this country, not throw it all the way to the left or right and regain the power and respect his country once had in the world.

    Good Luck to the Obama Campaign!
    and to those of you in IN and NC...Don't be stupid on Tuesday.

    – Obama should treat Elitiste and Wrigth Remarks just as he forcefully did when he was Attaked abt HOPE ..........
    – He has the necessary fortitude !
    – He was inspinring abt Hope , he can certainly developp a similar inspiring way abt elitist and Wright .

    – Been the Front Runner , you Obama should always Be Fired Up ..( No matter what )..Best way to defend yourself is ( to Inspire Big, uppon her Negative Attaks , Ok ? )

    – Barack , you know how to do it .
    – Obama do this thing.
    -Just do it

    Hillary doesn't care about Guam...Her mantra is, SCREW EM.....What did they ever do for me?????

    Hillary shows her real side all to often and it is completely careless of her to pick and choose her support. Not enough has been made of her dividing our country and people into who she cares about and who she doesn't. It looks like Guam isn't going to take her crap. Too bad the 50 states cant follow Guam's lead.....

    Indiana and North Carolina, it is up to you to end this misery that Hillary is making our Country go through..

    Why are the Clinton Supporters still complaining about Media bias, when in fact for the past 2months they have been attacking Obama? Stop the crying Clinton Supporters it'll all be over soon and Obama can move from the Soft Republican(Clinton) to the actual Republican( McCain).

  16. I like Hillary but lets get real.

    If Senator Obama wins, I will support him. Especially after the experts
    say that his gas tax plan is the best. After all, Rev. Wright won't be standing at the gas pump when we are filling up our tanks at $7.00 a

    What are the Guam delegate split rules?, i.e. how is the third delegate allocated?

  18. Yes Joe - Raleigh, NC.

    So is Obama going to use this to say that the tide is turning? A small island on the other side of the world which hasn't heard about Rev. Wright and all of his anti-American rhetoric? Obama has an office there and has his half-sister from Hawaii campaigning there.

  20. Shame....

    That’s great news for Hillary.

    Now she can parachute into Guam Capital to claim ‘Mission Accomplished’ right before she tells the natives how her Daddy rowed in a tiny boat all the way from America to pick coconuts and spend time with the natives.

    I hear she promised full US Citizenship for the natives; if this was so important why didn’t her husband do this when he was President? Oh, that doesn’t matter because the Clintons are brand new each and every day because Hillary is like a cat, many lives and many lies.
