Back in 2000 when George W. Bush went up against Al Gore and went on to win the presidency via the Electoral College, liberals (including the then-newly elected senator of New York) came to hate the system so much so that, when they weren't crying that "Bush stole the Election!", they wanted to abolish the EC altogether. Well, 8 years later, look who's crying now that it's Electoral College that counts the most, not the popular vote, number of delegates or whose won the most states:
Hillary Clinton’s camp says she’s ahead right now – depending on how you look at it.They'll do or say anything to win, it's the Billary way.
A key Clinton surrogate says he’s come up with the ultimate solution for deciding who should get the support of the Democratic Party’s super-delegates, given that neither Clinton nor Barack Obama will win enough elected delegates (2,025) to claim the nomination outright.
Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh says that Electoral College votes in each state won by the candidates should be tallied to determine the nominee.
“So who carried the states with the most Electoral College votes is an important factor to consider because ultimately, that’s how we choose the president of the United States,” Bayh said on CNN’s “Late Edition.”
If the Democratic Party went along with that plan – which seems highly unlikely, pundits say – Clinton would suddenly become the frontrunner, even though she trails in the number of elected delegates, the popular vote and the total number of states won.
Clinton’s states would give her 219 Electoral College votes (excluding Florida and Michigan ), while Obama would be awarded 202. Naturally, Obama’s camp was quick to dismiss the plan as an act of desperation.
