Nope. The US has switched to 'first to file' so a publication even 1 day before the filing date would be enough to be considered prior art.

actually, the Patent Office is just now publishing the proposed rules that will implement the "first to file" policies. You would have to check through their proposed rules to see how it is going to work going forward.

Right now, the old rules still apply.
