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.

    The country is tired of the Bush/Clinton, Clinton/Bush hunger for power. It is time for a new face. Obama or McCain. No Clinton or Bush. No more please.

    Thank you Guam for bringing a few more delegates into the insurmountable lead held by our Democratic party candidate for President Barack Obama! No way Hillary get the nod unless aliens come down to earth and take Barack away to their planet where of course many of the deluded Hillary supporters already have homes and condos.

    I would like to know the age of all those Obama supporters posting. Most of them sound like a bunch of giddy teenagers swooning over their favorite rock star. This election is more serious than that folks.

    Hmmm, too bad Guam didn't change to a primary like Puerto Rico so everyone can vote. But I guess that is the Obama way. Keep the wool pulled over their eyes or keep em from voting.

    Isn't it fascinating that CNN can count all of the states on super tuesday within 3 hours,yet they can't count this tiny island in that amount of time.I'm beginning to believe that just enough tension is being released to stir up new voters for november because I don't believe this contest was this close for this long.It's all a political gimmick created to get people to sign up to vote.Each media channel has their choice for candidates.What happened to true unbiased reporting.Everybodys in it for the promises and the money.Even all the newspapers.It's pathetic.

    All the TV stations are talking about how Hillary won Pennsylvania and gaining ground in North Carolina. But what they are not saying is that Obama ran against Hillary, Bill, Cheslie, the Governor and Mayor in Pennsylvania, plus she still have family there. Bill Clinton has been campaigning in North Carolina almost every day while Obama has to go from Indiana to North Carolina. Counting the odds against him and doing so well shows how strong he is. As far as experience, I am sure Obama is smart enough to select and surround himself with highly experience people. You don't have to know everuthing as long as you are a leader and surround yourself with experience people. Hillary has never been president before and did not have a security clearance so she has not had to make any presidential decisions. By the way I was once a die hard Hillary supporter, but since I've learned who she really is and her motive I will never vote for her.

    How long until Hillary's campaign makes the statement that caucuses don't matter and that Guam is unimportant?

    How are they going to proportion Guams 5 delegates.?
    they can't vote in the general anyway.
    How come Hilarys supporters say Cnn is biased toward Ob and versa'visa? how come every one thought the Clintons were the greatest thing that came down the pike 2 years ago and now hate them? Talk about flip floppers. you knew then what you knew now.
    Finally we are finding out what Ob is or isn't.
    These polls are just meant to keep you interested. The only poll that is important is the one in Nov. when people can vote in secret and don't have to be afraid of what to tell a pollster now.
    Most of these voters now are voting against someone not for someone.
    It is Hilarious.!!

    Go! OBAMA, you are the hope of America. If I was a US citizen, I would give you athousands of votes. I love you so much. There could be no change with Clinton, nor McCain. Obama is the super candidate, I am sure most of super delegates will lign behind you.

    I DON'T UNDERSTAND ALL THIS ABOUT THE GAS TAX RELIEF. OBAMA VOTED FOR THIS TAX RELIEF TWO YEARS AGO. NOW HE IS AGAINST IT? WHAT IS POLITICS?

    HILLARY CLINTON IS A BRAVE WOMAN. SHE WILL DO A WONDERFUL JOB AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. WHAT IS WITH THE PEOPLE AGAINST HER?

    IF SHE DOESN'T GET NOMINATED I WILL CHANGE TO REPUBLICAN.

    isn't guam just a causus state, do they even have electricity, little states don't count. the clinton backers ignorance toward the majority of americans( which lives in the small states) and americans living abroad is just astounding, i invite any clinton backer who says caususes are dumb or don't count to come to iowa or any other caucus state and see how far they get. also just keep bashing anything outside a large state and see how far it gets her.

    all you hillary people when this primary started everyone thought it will be hillary that will sweep the primary and win but Obama swept the carpet off her feet now she is the one acting like a victim wake all you people with no brains Obama has proved to the clinton that they are not a power house they just can't take whatevere they want and think no one can stand up to them. One thing i am glad for is that Obama will go down in history win or lose cause he made everyone see the dirt of the clinton.
