Oh, by the way...There was a caucus yesterday in Guam

Just in case you missed it - and if you blinked, you did - Guam held their Democratic caucuses yesterday and Barack Obama emerged the victor - by seven whole votes:

Sen. Barack Obama won the Democratic caucuses on Guam by seven votes over Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, less than 0.2 percent of the vote in a spirited election that required an overnight hand count of the ballots, the Associated Press reported.

Delegates pledged to Obama got 2,264 votes, while Clinton's slate received 2,257 -- an unusually heavy turnout to the polls for the U.S. island territory in the western Pacific.
The result means the candidates will split the four pledged delegate votes for the Democratic national convention.
U.S. citizens on the island have no vote in the November election.


And that's about all there is to say about Guam except if Obama had lost it would have been headline news - proof that the Wright controversy is cutting into his support.

That may be true on a large scale. But someone plesae tell me why we should 1) care about 4 lousy delegates; and 2) care about a contest someplace where the citizens won't even have a voice in the November election?
