    I would argue that the founding fathers originally created the senate and the electoral college as a bulwark against the uneducated, illiterate, uniformed voter.  These are the people most easily led (led astray) and manipulated by what they feel and not what they know and think. Democrats need to start playing hardball.  The Republicans win because they do some nasty Machiavellian stuff. Democrats need to fight like they want to win... not preach to an already converted congregation.  Funnily enough, they do the Christian thing and turn the other cheek only to get kicked in the nuts.  The whole Swiftie thing was enough to prove to me that the Republicans are going to continue winning for awhile because they'll do whatever it takes.
