Al Gore: Electoral College Should Be ‘Eliminated’

13

Speaking at an event in Washington, D.C. this week, former Vice President Al Gore says he has changed his mind about the importance of the Electoral College, the Daily Beast reports. As one of two Democratic nominees this century to win the popular vote but lose the presidency due to the Electoral College system, Gore said, “I do think that it should be eliminated.”

Gore added, “I think moving to a popular vote system is not without peril, is not without problems, it’s not a simple one choice is all good, the other is all bad. It’s a balancing act. But I think the balance has shifted, in my mind at least, and I think that we should go to a popular vote.”

  1. Silly human jovial nagging contempt for the electoral college. It favors wealth. No mistake to make America function so.

    Hint- fun.

    • Same thing happened to him: he also won the popular vote but lost the election, so he’s a nogei’a badavar. However, if my memory serves me correctly, the Rabbonim said to vote for him.

  2. I think a hybrid system can be figured out where the popular vote can make some difference and not like now where it doesn’t mean a lick.

  3. Hey dufus! It’s in the Constitution! It’s the law of the land! But once you’re talking about eliminating – why not get your stupid green משוגעת eliminated!

  4. John Kerry already told us that air conditioners are the single greatest threat to the future of this planet.
    Scary.
