...as the Democratic candidate for President. By virtue of his race, he will be very familiar with the concept of having to work twice as hard and be twice as good to merely be perceived as equal. I wouldn't be surprised, therefore, to discover that Obama is working flat out to ensure he gets at least twice as many votes as McCain, which (even with widespread election fraud by the GOP) should be just enough for Obama to "squeak by" in what the MSM will continue to characterize as a "horse race."

As for fixing the electoral system before November, I can't see that happening. The issue keeps failing to get traction where it matters. I do share your frustration, for what it's worth.
