Hillary Clinton has been the leading Democrat for president in every poll but one — but it’s a big one. John Edwards has her beat in Iowa, a new Iowa Poll conducted for The Des Moines Register showed. Thirty percent of Iowans who plan to participate in the 2008 Democratic caucuses said they would vote for Edwards. Clinton came in a close second with 26 percent of the vote. John Kerry and Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack trailed behind in third and fourth places. Of course, a lot could change between now and January, but Georgetown University professor Stephen Wayne told The Des Moines Register that Clinton’s second-place finish shouldn’t be ignored. “That should be very encouraging to other Democrats,” he said, “that she’s not a shoo-in.”
