So much for the know-it-alls who predicted big things still in store for John Edwards, whose small but solid support in the proportionally awarded Democratic primaries may have given him a powerful delegate voice at the national convention. Provided he pulled at least fifteen percent of the vote in any of Super Tuesday’s contests, Edwards stood to gain a noticeable slice of the pie—some suggested as many as 400 or 500 delegates—a bargaining chip to shop around some of his key agendas to the frontrunners if the Clinton/Obama race to the nomination remains close.
