Is that really true? Maybe it is. Heck, it probably is. I don't know Ambinder and am not overly familiar with his work, but I do have a distinct memory of being in Nevada the week before the Nevada caucus and reading this post from him:
Why, precisely, do we, the media, not believe that John Edwards could win Nevada?
Because I think he could win Nevada...
Incidentally: my guess, based on what I've seen, heard and read, is that the results will bebunchedtogether and that no one will be able to declare victory.
The final results in Nevada were Clinton +5 with Edwards at 3 percent.
Having been around the state all that week, it was pretty obvious that there was no enthusiasm for Edwards anywhere, from anyone.
