  •  We still need the popular vote too (6+ / 0-)

    to counteract the growing-legs meme about how unfair it is for one person to win the unfair undemocratic Electoral College, when someone else won the popular vote and is therefore the rightful President.

    The only way to put this to bed (except chanting "Bush v Gore" for the next 4 years) is to win the national popular vote too, by a comfortable margin -- which means GOTV everywhere, even in safe states and "hopeless" states.

      It's not like the people who say that wouldn't find a different reason to explain why this election should be ignored if Obama wins the popular vote.  Obama easily won both last time and that didn't exactly make the Republicans willing to work with him.  

      Republicans will have a line of nonsense to spew regardless of what happens.

      But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.
