Guam? GUAM?

I think this may be unprecedented in our election. Candidates running for office are that desperate for electors to get the nomination that they are actually paying attention to the tiny US territory of Guam. Guam has only 4 delegates, as well as 5 superdelegates, for a grand total of 9 delegates. It's funny how the places that didn't matter before suddenly are important and get attention. I'm curious how important South Dakota will become to the Democrats that normally view it as a "fly over" state as their nomination process drags on. It bothers me when candidates could care less, then when you matter they come and tour the state, pretend they have stories from here, and act like they're neighbors with you. Three cheers for elitism!
