The current Democratic frontrunner for president is no longer Hilary Clinton, it seems. (And thank God for that.) The spotlight is now on a new frontrunner: John Kerry's '04 running mate, John Edwards.
And it's not a small lead, either. The Iowa poll (Iowa and New Hampshire being the two most important states in the primaries) looks like this:
- John Edwards 36%
- Hillary Clinton 16%
- Barack Obama 13%
- Tom Vilsack 11%
Edwards and Obama are probably the Democrats' best choices, in my opinion. An Edwards/Obama or Obama/Edwards ticket would be a force to be reckoned with.
