Not sure I would like that outcome, but there is some good potential there. I mean, we would get to see all of the Democrats who have been whining for the last 4 years that we should get rid of the electoral college sticking to their principles and clamoring that Bush should indeed be president...

Yeah, something tells me that they don't have that level of integrity either....

Well, the flipside of that is that the Republicans who've spent the last four years saying "This is how the system works, deal with it" would all of a sudden spend the next four years scoffing at Kerry because "after all, the majority of Americans didn't even vote for him." Both sides would be taking long drinks from the cup o'hypocrisy.

Actually, the way I look at is once both sides have gotten screwed over, maybe we can finally start to have some real discussions about fixing the system without falling into partisan rhetoric.

Personally, I don't think the electoral college is a system that needs fixed. I like it, and I will continue to stand by it, even IF Bush wins the popular vote, but loses to Kerry in the college.

And do feel free to save this link to throw in my face later, if my tune changes. But that won't happen. Sure, if Kerry wins, I will think that the voters made a seriously stupid call, and say as much quite passionately, but I will not blame the electoral college one bit....

Which of course makes the horrificly erroneous assumption that the system is broken...

Of course, if you really want fun, root for the exact same breakdown as the last election (minus all the fun in Florida) and then watch the election get thrown into the House of Representatives because of this guy (dailymail.com) deciding that if Bush wins West Virginia, he won't cast his electoral vote for Bush. If you thought it was way too partisan last time, duck and cover once it gets into the House.
