As John Edwards Goes...


...so, inversely, goes Obama.

Having slept on last night's results it occurs to me that John Edwards is the only thing keeping Hillary Clinton viable in this race.

Here's 20 percent of the Democratic vote, hanging onto -- at this point -- a nonviable candidate. And as fervently as they are for John Edwards, they are equally contra Clinton.

If Edwards were to withdraw -- say, in exchange for a new cabinet position ... poverty czar? -- and throw his weight squarely behind Obama, Barack's core support goes from the high thirties to near 50.

Game. Set. Match.
