Electoral College, Caucasus, are archaic remnants of the pre-telegraph stagecoach era. Or so I thought. I was surprised that when Al Gore won the popular election, and lost the Electoral College, that there were not demands for reform. There were a few calls to change the rules during the process, but no calls after. After losing, they just blamed Bush. Then called for climate change.
The rules are the rules, not sure if the spirit of the rules, or the letter of the rules are being followed. However that is the name of the game, and why I do not like politics.
