The Electoral College football team
: At Location One, there are some nice folks from other countries and they’ve been asking me what the hell this Electoral College thing is. I’m making it sound like it makes sense, doing my diplomatic best. And I’m telling them it will never go away. It used to be about slavery and confederation and state’s right. But now, of course, it’s all about campaign spending. It makes TV so much cheaper… for now. But once TV is no longer regional but directly addressable by anyone anywhere on the internet, that will change: Candidates will need to advertise to all the people again.
