One more thing, then I'll shut up. Conservatives should check out what Saul Anuzis has to say in support of this, at http://bit.ly/9X4MfP. Saul is a former Republican chairman in Michigan, a thinking man's conservative. He makes some compelling arguments in favor of this. Let's get this done.
As an avowed Federalist, I couldn't support this thing if it ran counter to the will of the Founders. It doesn't get rid of the Electoral College, it just updates it. At the state level, where the Founders said it should be done -- not in an elitist committee room in Washington.
A common sense solution to a scary problem. The way we do it now, a whole lot of votes don't count. In a state like California, which a Democrat just about always wins, thousands of Republican votes mean absolutely nothing, with the winner-takes-all setup.
