Poll is Good News For Obama

"Democrat Barack Obama surged to a four-point lead over John Edwards in Iowa, with Hillary Clinton fading to third just hours before the first presidential nominating contest, according to a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll released on Thursday...

And there are reports of horsetrading between the Obama and Richardson campaign, the net result being Richardson votes going Obama's way "in caucuses where the New Mexico governor can’t clear the threshold for competition." The Obama camp has pledged "to support to Mr. Richardson at caucuses where Mr. Obama turns out more backers than he needs to win any additional delegates."

This comes on the heals of Dennis Kucinich telling reporters to swing their support behind Obama.
