  •  Agreed. We haven't been concerned enough by this (0+ / 0-)

    As if this was just some everyday political "gaming the system" like playing with early voting hours (not to say that wasn't a huge deal). But this is deeper, as it would institutionalize anti-democratic governance in a fundamental way. Imagine if every presidential election was like 2000?

    If we were lucky, that result would prompt passage of a Constitutional amendment to finally abolish the awful Electoral College. If not, the legitimacy of the US system of government would be called into question, and could lead to civil unrest, or worse...

    Thankfully some somewhat-sane Republicans are backing away from this scheme.
