Close NV win for Clinton over Obama, Edwards lags

Close Dem race in Nevada won by Clinton

TUCSON -- It was a bad day for John Edwards across the Colorado River in Nevada. With 90% of the votes in, it looks like Edwards will get about 4%, and Clinton will edge Obama by about 5%.

I still believe John Edwards can catch fire. The real question for him must be keeping up money and volunteers as many activist Dems line up behind Clinton and Obama.

If Edwards does better in South Carolina and hangs in until Feb 5 Super Tuesday, he may still have a shot, but it is getting harder for him now.

Clinton must feel good about winning Nevada. Many thought Obama would take the Silver State. Maybe Bill's temper wasn't so harmful after all.
