Re: Digest Number 141
- Hi Joel,
Hillary Clinton talked about it after she was first elected. But, of
course, it didn't go anywhere. Then 9/11 happened and a bunch of other
things happened. So Congress probably just didn't have time (or didn't
want) to deal with it.
Besides Colorado, I believe NH and ME did the same thing as well.

> Have there been any other recent proposals to abolish the ElectoralCollege by amending the U.S. Constitution? One would think that after
the mess in Florida in 2002, there would have been several proposed
amendments to abolish or overhaul the current system. There was that
proposal in Colorado earlier this year, in which the electors would
have been apportioned based on popular vote, as opposed to the
winner-take-all system, but I am not sure about any others.
