Woot! Turnout Up Everywhere

I know I am a broken record, but even after 18 hours of Super Tuesday, I am still giddy about the high levels of participation in this primary. The passion for making oneself heard is amazing and infectious—and it stretches all the way to American Samoa, where voters cannot even participate in the election, only the primary:
A record 285 caucus-goers voted in a hotel in Pago Pago, American Samoa. They gave Clinton 163 votes and Barack Obama 121, with one going to former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel.

The result gives Clinton two more national convention votes and Obama one.

Party officials said it is the biggest caucus vote ever in American Samoa.
I am made of grins and happiness.
