You have made one of the best arguments for the dismantling of the Electoral
College which I've heard recently.

But until, the EC is gone, I say "Whats good for the Goose is good for the
Gander". To get Slick Willy and his unethical cronies (94 are either under
investigation, resigned, fired,convicted or dead.) out of the White House,
Conservatives will take it just like the Democrats did in 1992.
