The race for the Democratic Party nomination for president has grown very tight in the
nation's first caucus state, as likely Iowa Democratic caucus-goers give John Edwards a tiny lead over Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, a new Zogby telephone poll shows.
Edwards leads with 27 percent support, the same percentage that backed him in a mid-January Zogby poll. Close on his heels is Clinton at 25 percent support, up from 16 percent in the January
Obama has also improved his standing among Iowans over the past two months, winning 23 percent support. Fifteen percent said they were unsure whom they would support.
Obama won 17 percent support in the January survey.
Good for Edwards, whose candidacy for President was a mere afterthought before he called that press conference to announce that his wife Elizabeth's cancer had returned. And Edwards should also be thankful to the liberal media who had us all quaking in the boots that he might actually "drop" his run for Presidency. Of course, anyone whose been paying attention to former trial lawyer Edwards resume knows full well that he would never let something like a family crisis get in the way of fulfilling his boyhood dream.
