    Hillary in 2012? It could happen
    A number of news reports have suggested the possibility of the presidential election ending in a draw — both candidates garnering 269 electors. You need 270 to win. A long shot? Maybe. It happened in 1800, when Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr each...
  • Small Wonders: Just getting what we deserve

    It all comes down to Tuesday. The year-long tour de force of stump speeches, primaries, promises, debates and conventions. All the mudslinging, invectives, media circuses, accusations, half-truths, almost-facts and outright lies. All the straight...
  • What will the liberal media do if Obama loses the popular vote but wins the Electoral College?

    I have a bet with a friend that if President Obama wins re-election in the Electoral College but loses the popular vote, all the raging against the Electoral College in the print and broadcast media will immediately cease. Within three months, you won't...
  • How to fix the Electoral College

  • The Electoral College is immoral

    Regardless of Election Day's results, it's time to call the Electoral College what it truly is — immoral. Obtaining equal voting rights has been a struggle in the United States since our inception. We immorally excluded women and entire ethnicities....
  • Spare us more politics-as-sport

    As a septuagenarian (and Democrat), I was happy that President Barack Obama won re-election, but sad that the morning-after TV news shows reported the win as "the election results validated the Obama team's game plan," rather than the election was the...
  • Electoral College a legacy of slavery

    The "Making presidential elections fairer" commentary (Nov. 17) omits that the Electoral College is another legacy of slavery. The compromise of 1787, the counting of slaves as three-fifths of a person in determining the number of representatives in...
  • Election System Could Use A Shake-Up

    Election System Could Use A Shake-Up
    The balloons, posters and confetti had not yet been swept up, or crying towels laundered, when talk turned to 2016 candidates. Good heavens, could we not have a few months' respite? But as we look forward, as eventually we must, shouldn't we talk...
  • Wednesday Morning Coffee: Reapportionment Commission Meets Again Today.

     
    Good Wednesday Morning, Fellow Seekers. Generally speaking, on the day before Thanksgiving we don't like to engage in intellectual activity much more rigorous than mixing up our Italian Great Uncle Giovanni Paolo Not Silvio Burlusconi's Capitol Ideas'...
  • Rhubarb Patch: Swirls and Eddies in GOP primary crosscurrents

     
    Today, veteran political strategist and former executive director of the Illinois Republican Party Christine Dudley (right) joins me for an e-mail back and forth about the race for the presidency. To: Christine From: Eric Three months ago, I saw no......
