Awaiting Results: Obama Takes Guam By Seven Votes


Seven. Votes. More than 4,500 Democrats voted in Guam today with the squeaker results: Obama, 2,264; Clinton, 2,257.

Well politics fans, it doesn't get any closer than that. The US territory will send four pledged delegates and five superdelegates to the National Convention, though they don't get a vote in the November general election.

Hillary Clinton has pledged to change that — according to her campaign Clinton, "believes that every American citizen should be able to vote for the president and have their vote count. Citizens should have representation in the executive branch of their national government. Territories send young men and women to serve in the US military, and they should have a say in who is their commander in chief."

Update: Don't forget to set your DVRs (or get up early) tomorrow to catch Obama for the full hour of NBC's Meet the Press, and flip over to catch Clinton on This Week on ABC.
