Wipe out college – the Electoral College, that is. It’s not merely that the constitutional provisions for it are anachronistic, but its continued existence is downright dangerous to our democratic system. It’s not merely that Presidents can be and have been elected who have lost the popular vote, but its existence forces Presidential candidates to emphasize issues not necessarily of national importance. From all I’ve read, studied and thought about the matter, I can’t find one good reason why the President and Vice President shouldn’t be elected by popular vote.
