http://www.newsobserver.com/102/story/434527.html Evan Bayh- Among other things: "Q: Why do you think we should abolish the Electoral College? A: "I think our president should be chosen by the majority of the American people. That is ordinarily the case. But in 2000, as we all recall, we elected this president with fewer votes than the other candidate got. I just don't think in the modern era that is appropriate." WRONG!!!!! Keeping the Electoral College is more important than ever, IMO. Without it, each state loses its stake in presidential elections.
