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.

    EVERYONE:

    I just heard both Hillary and Obama speak last night, and to tell you the truth, either one of them will make a fine president - much better than McCain. So let us not give the republicans more weapons to turn against our candidates - let's pull for either of them to represent us in November, because we need the democratic party– OUR party– to be on top again and help the economy, end these senseless wars, help our nation and the environment. The bottom line, isn't that what we care about ?Let us join together against this mess the republicans have driven us into. Vote democratic, be patriotic, do it for your country. Be mature and responsible. STOP ATTACKING the candidates.

    If primaries keep breaking even, I figure Obama needs about 90 more superdelegates.

    Interesting race.

    The divisive politics she has been plying HAVE NOT been highlighted on the news nearly enough. I hope voters see through her anything to win scams. She is running like a republican!

    At least Guam has the good sense to know a fake when they see one. I wish that Indiana and North Carolina would see through her lies. The media certainly isn't revealing what they know to be true about Hillary......she doesn't really mind dividing the country down the middle, even if it costs the democrats the election. She is a republican when it suits her (Bill O'Reilly) and a bleeding heart liberal when that helps her cause (gun slingin, whiskey drinkin good ole boy). Go Guam! Go Obama!

    Clinton must drop out right away. There is no chance whatsoever for her to become the nominee. Neither can she win in November general election against McCain should she "bulldozer" her way through the nomination.

    Time for President Bush and Congress to ask Mr. Obama to resign his U.S senate position. FOR THE GOOD OF AMERICA.

    Not for long

    10 of 21 precincts in; Obama clings to 6% lead

    10 island municipalities have been accounted for as of 1:50am Sunday, with Obama garnering 719 votes (53%), leading Clinton's 629 votes (47%). Pilar Lujan is the leading vote-getter for the Democratic Party of Guam chairperson seat with 682 votes.

    Obama can't win in General election in November,mainly the polls show that Hillary is strong with Mccain in November. How any one can say that Hillary ignore small states. She is the one asking every vote should be counted and Obama is the one who doesn't want to count Michigan and Florida voters as Hillary is always doing better in bigger states. So, Obama supporters pl. stop saying she doesn't care small states.

    Go Hillary'08. Clintons embraced values with all sectors of the America in the past, including African Americans, which makes us to believe, you are the best fit to be our president.

    I'm sure if Obama wins Guam, Clinton will just use it as another "example" of her argument that activists like MoveOn must be flooding into these caucuses to intimidate her supporters (because clearly Clinton supporters are so easily-intimidated?).

    When we are talking about the vote count in South Pacific villages you know we're split. I hope we don't just hand this thing to the Repulicans in November.

    This woman's pandering knows no limits! I was watching yet another Clinton political advertisement, waiting for her to start talking about meeting with a single mother in Agana, or Dededo who needed healthcare but none was available. Or how she will make the military presence there as strong as it was before her husband all but closed the military infrastructure during his administration. Hafa Adai also means goodbye Mrs Clinton, please don't come back!

    Obama '08

    HIllary Clinton ROCKS!

    I'm sure Obama will use Guam to say he's still viable, bummer they can't vote in the general election for him while MI & FL will finally have their voices heard and vote for Hillary Clinton or McCain.
