King For A Day

KING FOR A DAY....In the latest LA Times poll, Hillary Clinton leads Barack Obama nationally 42%-33%. Then there's this:
Former Democratic Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina drew the support of 11% of Democratic respondents. When asked who they would vote for if their first choice dropped out, slightly more Edwards voters leaned toward Clinton than toward Obama, the poll found.
If this is accurate, then it means that all the talk about who would benefit from Edwards dropping out is meaningless. Nobody would.

On the other hand [WARNING! Brokered convention alert!], if Edwards stays in the race and prevents either Clinton or Obama from getting a majority of the delegates, he could be a kingmaker. Or a queenmaker. Who knows? Maybe that appeals to him.
