RE:>> But it is only the schoolboy mentality who has been

I "resemble" that remark! LOL!!! I can read more about
this, now, and I shall. However, in the interim, I'm in favor of
letting the country as a WHOLE elect the president, not state by state.
I can understand why senators and congressman should be elected by each
states total vote, and the vote should be binding. Doing this county
by county in a mini-electoral college format just creates too much opportunity
for skewing the vote in favor of the larger metro areas. And
this is what can happen in the electoral college.
The total vote count COULD elect one Pres & VP combo but be overridden
by the Electoral College. And, the Electors are not bound to
vote as the populace voted (even though they, by-and-large, do).
