Do you really want to go through a national popular count, followed by a 
national recount, followed by a national hand recount of 100,000,000 votes 
to determine "voter intent?"  Who would care about the vote in New Mexico, 
Montana, ...

Hillary is not stupid.  She knows that if she ever wants to run for 
president that most of her support would come from New York, Florida, and 
California and that she would have little chance if it depended on 
electoral college votes from the south, midwest, and the small western 
states.  However, I do not want a president who has been elected by the 
four or five largest states.

And now that I have had MY turn on this issue, I think that we should get 
back to Sinclair business.
