There’s something going on down there.  Obama has a commanding lead and is set to win that state’s primary.  But the not-much-discussed story is Edwards who has been surging like a madman over the past few days according to this poll:

Candidate 1/22-24 1/21-23 1/20-22 RCP 5-poll Ave.
Obama 38 39 43 38.2
Clinton 25 24 24 26.4
Edwards 21 19 15 19.2

He’s now within 4 point sof Clinton.

What would happen, one wonders, if Clinton came in third in South Carolina tomorrow?
