Edwards Is Ok?


Let’s say Edwards wins Oklahoma and wins SC by 10% or better. The question has always been: “Now what?” Kerry has huge leads in the Saturday contest, particulary Michigan, and 49% of all Democrats nationwide say they want Kerry to be the nominee.

So let’s assume Edwards gets lucky and wins in Tennessee and Virginia, too (Note: Edwards has been nonexistent here in VA thus far). OK, so now he’s the guy who lost nine of the first 12 contests to Kerry. Worse for Edwards, every win is in the South, while Kerry would have wins across the nation.

Thus an Edwards win in OK would still be much ado about nothing.
