32. I understand now.

First, I never claimed Bush had a mandate, so I am not sure the relevance of bringing that up. Second, I mentioned the popular vote specifically because that is the metric that I value. I didn't have a whole lot of respect for the Electoral College when Bush lost the popular vote, and I don't have a lot for it now.

Lastly, thanks for making me feel so welcome. I didn't realize that it was SO OUTRAGEOUS to think that getting 50%-51% of the popular vote was not that amazing, especially considering how awful the alternative was. Sorry for thinking out loud, friends.
