Feb. 24  Edwards manages to get enough votes in Hawaii to swing the state from Kerry to Kucinich.  He also picks up a couple more delegates in Idaho and Utah.

Mar 2. Edwards wins the primaries in Georgia and Ohio and the caucus in Minnesota and gains delegates across the board as Kerry only manages pluralities in California, Connecticut, Maryland, and  New York.

Mar 9.  Edwards wins Texas, Missisippi, and Louisiana.  It begins to look like a divided convention is a possibility.  Network news anchors salivate as the possibility no longer seems as remote as it once was.  The superdelagates consider who would make the better candidate.
