With regard to the electoral college, just had this discussion a half hour ago with a friend (a Texan).

He felt we should get rid of the electoral colllege.

I pointed out that doing so would enable candidates to ignore smaller states and small towns, and focus on LA, Chicago, NYC... So most national level decisions would bias even more toward large urban area voters.

My Texan friend now thinks maybe the electoral college is not all bad.
