As Goes Guam


Guam Democratic Caucuses

Polls Open: 12:00 am ET (midnight)
Polls Close: 10:00 am ET

Four delegates are at stake Saturday when the tiny Western Pacific Island of Guam holds Democratic caucuses.

Neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton have traveled to Guam, but both Democratic '08ers have been courting voters.

Obama told the Pacific Daily News this week that his Hawaii roots make him "especially sensitive" to the needs of islanders. Per the AP, Hillary Clinton has called for Guamanians to be able to vote in presidential elections.

There are 19 sites throughout Guam where registered Democrats are able to indicate their presidential preference. Same day registration is allowed.

Obama: No More 'Gimmicks and Game-Playing'

Per ABC's Sunlen Miller, Barack Obama delivers his "closing argument" to the Hoosier State on Saturday in Indianapolis, Ind.

Obama will discuss how he wants to help working families succeed in a global economy by ending "the influence of lobbyists," bringing "both parties together," and telling the American people "the truth" about the challenges facing the United States.

Clinton: Tuesday 'A Game Changer':

While Obama is promising to end "gimmicks and game-playing," Hillary Clinton is promising that Tuesday will be a "game changer."

Per ABC's Eloise Harper, Clinton stressed the importance of Tuesday's Tar Heel State primary while campaigning Friday in Kinston, N.C.

"This primary election on Tuesday is a game changer," said Clinton. "This is going to make a huge difference in what happens going forward. The entire country -- probably even a lot of the world is looking to see what North Carolina decides."

Black on McCain: 'Not a Protégé of President Bush':

Per ABC's Ron Claiborne, McCain adviser Charlie Black said Friday that voters who follow politics already know that the presumptive Republican nominee is not a "protégé of President Bush" and that those who don't know "will learn that background."

"We're going to be talking about climate change quite a bit," said Black at a Christian Science Monitor lunch with reporters. "That's a big difference between McCain and Bush."

McCain's Week Ahead:

On Monday, John McCain marks Cinco de Mayo by meeting with the press in his home state of Arizona and launching the Spanish version of his website.

On Tuesday, the presumptive Republican nominee speaks out against "judicial activism" while outlining his judicial philosophy in North Carolina.

On Wednesday, McCain heads to the Midwest to outline specific steps that his administration will take on behalf of human rights and against human trafficking.

On Thursday, McCain conducts a series of interviews in New York City.

On Friday, McCain joins former New Jersey Gov. Tom Kean in the Garden State to discuss the environment.

Sunday TiVo alert:

Hillary Clinton takes part Sunday in a special edition of "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" from Indianapolis, Ind.

The former first lady will take questions from Stephanopoulos as well as from voters in studio in Indianapolis and others via satellite from North Carolina.

Barack Obama appears on NBC's "Meet the Press."

The kicker:

"The only way she can win is if Indiana says yes to her. If you say yes to her she can win."
