INDIANAPOLIS, IND.-- A day after winning the Guam primary--by seven votes--, the Obama campaign's Dan Pfeifer--the spokesman handling superdelegate news--announced Sunday superdelegate Jaime Paulino is supporting Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.). Paulino is the vice chair of the Guam Democratic Party.

Paulino statement: "Having grown up in Hawaii, Barack Obama understands the culture and challenges of growing up in the Pacific Islands. I feel Barack will make sure our voices and concerns are finally taken seriously in Washington. We've been looking for a leader with the character to be honest with us about the issues we face and the courage to make real change, and that's why I am proudly supporting Barack Obama for President."

This brings the total number of superdelegates to endorse Barack Obama to 257. Senator Obama is 275 delegates away from securing the Democratic nomination.

...like my former baseball coach told us, win by one or one hundred its still a win, and i say that for Obama!

I have heard NOTHING from Barry Soleto about Hawaii indigenous peoples. NOTHING!
So the kids trampled 500 Hillary ballots to get THIS ONE superdelegate.
Come August--we'll have to SEE whether Obama is still a viable candidate (I don't think he has been a viable candidate REALLY since Iowa.
Read about Robert Blackwell.
This is like the mushroom--you only see the top of it.
