Or Maybe a Three-Man Race?

The newest polls from Oklahoma all show Clark in the lead. I was wrong to pronounce him dead yesterday (wishful thinking); Kerry's momentum has slowed, and the race will come down to the wire. Intriguingly, SurveyUSA shows Edwards in second, ahead of Kerry. Second in OK and first in SC would be a respectable splash for Edwards.

And Edwards does look good in new South Carolina polls. The boneheaded Democratic loyalty oath that Michael Graham writes about here could propel Kerry to a victory, but the victory would be tainted; whether that taint would be enough to let Edwards continue is an open question.
