Every Vote Counts

Obama defeats Clinton in Guam caucuses by 7 votes - CNN.com: "With all 21 precincts reporting, Obama finished with 2,264 votes, or 50.1 percent. Sen. Hillary Clinton got 2,257 votes, or 49.9 percent.
Each candidate picked up two delegates." See! Beware statistics. According to several reports I've read they have only reported that Obama won Guam or that he got 50.1% or that he got the majority win .... when in reality he won by 7 votes.

That's it. Just 7 votes. But as it turns out it was a wash on the delegate count ... since each gained 2 of the 4 offered by Guam.

So the next person you hear moan that their vote won't matter much -- point out Guam to them. 7 votes. that's it.
