7:40 am
not many people understand the genius of the electoral college. is easily lampooned, easily run against the bank if it is ever done away with university a presidential candidate intent is picking. there is a certain location of a density of population. hilary doesn't need the. she needs to sell the american people on the idea that it is unfair that everyone votes count as much. entity that doesn't arrive on your to do you make of you are californians? you don't matter.
