KUCINICH-EDWARDS DEAL IN IOWA....In the Iowa caucuses, if a candidate doesn't get 15% of the vote in the first round his supporters have to switch their support to another candidate in the second round. This rule applies to each individual caucus.

Apparently Dennis Kucinich has told his supporters that if they don't reach the 15% minimum he wants them to support John Edwards as their second choice. Since Kucinich is likely to miss the 15% mark in virtually every caucus, this is likely to give Edwards a solid 2-3% boost.
