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.

    Go Obama, go, soon you'll have 500 votes in Guam, or 55% and you"ll score a win of another small population, like Alaska (75% or 302 votes), or Maine (60% or 2079 votes). What a sweeping landslide victory!

    Go Obama, go – to Guam or Indonesia – and don't come back

    Just saw your footage on Guam primary and we're amazed and dissapointed in your lack of research. You showed pictures of islanders in Yap, not Guam, on the beach waving at an airplane. Please be accurate. (try googling Guam and find out about 5-star hotels and a thriving international business community.

    WHen will the truth come out about Hillary and Bill re: The PAUL case showing that the Clinton took money from him.. The judges have held that Clinton cannot be deposed before the election. WHAT IS ALL THAT ABOUT? WHY IS THE MEDIA NOT WALKING ABOUT THIS? IS OUR GOVT AND MEDIA AND JUDGES CONTROLLED BY THOSE IN POWER THAT WANT TO SWAY AN ELECTION THEIR WAY?

    Hillary winning big states has nothing to do with who will win in November. The Democratic candidate for president will win in November unless you McCain lover's want four more years of debt, war, recession, high gas prices, bridges falling down, etc.

    Barack has won 30 contests out of 45 contests...3 to 1 over Hillary. Barack is ahead in popular votes by 500,000, not counting his overwhelming majority of wins in caucases. Barack is ahead in pledged delegates, which is what this primary is about...the one who wins the most pledged delegates gets the nomination.

    So, all you Hillary folks need a reality check...your candidate has already lost the election.

    QUESTION FOR ANYONE..... Are we all ok with this? Hillary is going to go to the "superdelegates" and say this, "guys I know Obama won more delegates, I know Obama won more states, I know he has more popular votes but I'm better than him".

    Please answer me somebody with a yes or no and maybe a little comment, are people ok with that position????

    So what....it's guam.....Don't they eat like mice over there? Anyway, it's pointless because neither Guam nor Puerto Rico can vote in the general election.

    Stan, Thank you for your response to my blog. I wasn't for sure when the polls closed. I didn't see anything that indicated the polls were closed.

    Uhm, what does everyone have against caucus states? Are they not as intelligent or something? Do their votes not matter in the grand scheme of things or something? All this crying about Hillary winning the big states is foolish. Most are states a democrat will win in November no matter what. New York? California? Pennsylvania? Those are states made for democrats no matter who the candidate is. The only real battleground state she's won is Ohio and had her NAFTA loving advisor been brought to task there instead of the mis-information on Obama and Canada, she would have lost her credit there as well. Both ran good campaigns, well, mostly. But the winner is Obama. You would rather ignore democracy and just hand the election of Hillary because she was supposed to have won in the first place?

    Obama has taken over a million dollars in donations from sub-prime lenders. Citigroup,Washington Mutual,Countrywide,Credit Suisse, Centex and Goldman Sachs. He is beholden to them and their tatics. He talks out of both sides of his mouth. He is a typical politician who will say what he thinks you want to hear. Rev. Wright said it all, Obama is a politician who says what a politician needs to say to win."
    Google it folks...
