#1 I think people like swil and algore are precisely why the founders came up with the Electoral College.

#2 No Electoral College, no United States. Clear and Simple. Then the smaller states were not going to give up their sovereignty to 4 or 5 big states. No more than nearly 2/3rd of today's states want to give up their sovereignty to 10 major metropolitan areas.

#4 This can be improved by simple changes to the size of the House.

See here and here.

#5 Do we want the Governors of California, Texas, Florida, and New York forming a cabal that rotates the Presidency among them? Kill the Electoral College and usher in the Oligarchy assuming that it isn't here already.

#6 So the most smartest-est, accomplished-ed woman who ever lived or WILL live only just found out the rules of the election?

#7 First they gut the Electoral College, then they will gut the powers of the Senate, and finally they will gut the powers of the Presidency. Sic transit Republic. They want a Parliamentary Tyranny of the Majority.

Do you really want a "Democracy"? The Ancient Greeks came to the opinion that when approx. 3,000 Voters are in a city Democracy, Pure Democracy, becomes unworkable. Their only solution was Oligarchy, they just called it prettier names.

#9 She was aware of the electoral collage prior to the Presidential campaign. Pathetic to complain about it afterwards.

#10 She has a law degree, and according to her husband was a brilliant student of the subject — Yale, if I recall correctly.. The United States Constitution is one of the topics she was required to study, so she has been aware of the Electoral College for about half a century.
