Does anyone else find it fascinating that before the election, when most 
people thought that Gore would win the Electoral College and lose the 
popular vote, that Gore supporters (not necessarily on Burke-L) were 
calling themselves "strict constructionists" as regards the Electoral College?
Now all of a sudden the College is the most anti-democratic instrument ever 
devised.   Sounds like there's a variation of "heads I win, tails you lose" 
going on here.

No, I did not vote for Dubya.
