Abolish The Electoral College?
In light of the havoc it has wreaked this presidential election, many Americans are calling for an end to the electoral college. What do you think?

“We must keep the electoral college. Without it, last night's Nightline probably would have been about the war on cholesterol.”
Reggie Ennis –
“The electoral-college system was designed to protect our nation from the ignorance of its people. And, based on the 2000 vote, it's still dearly needed.”
Manny Blake –
“I'm all for getting rid of the electoral college, but wouldn't that mean we'd have to dig up Samuel J. Tilden and make him president retroactively?”
Tom Kallen –
“This election mess confirms what I've been saying for years: Our nation should be split into warring factions, each ruled by a warlord who receives messages from God.”
Matt Funk –
“The presidency should go to the candidate who earns the larger minority of the popular vote.”
