Electoral College

In the NY Times op-ed piece Blue State Blues, Gail files the latest installment in what seems like a U.S. Presidential Election year tradition, the rant against the Electoral College. I agree. The marginal value of a vote in Ohio or Florida is worth too much more than a vote in states that nearly always go blue or red when deciding our future President. It's a wonder so many voters in those states, like California, New York, or Texas, even bother.
