    Letting voters pick presidents makes sense to me.

    Do some research on why we have a bicameral Legislative Branch of government Lakhota. I don't think Rhode Island, Wyoming, Alaska, New Hampshire, Connecticut, etc really feel like being bullied to death by what is in New York and California's best interests.

    After reading the "entire" article, it makes good sense to me.

    What does "it has half the states it needs" mean? They are willing to approve a Constitutional Amendment? What?

    No surprises here. When a liberal administration is in trouble the radical left claims it wants to overhaul the whole electoral system. Nobody but nut cases and the OWS takes the issue seriously.
