The Electoral College

over 4 years ago

It always hurts to get savaged by a force you don't understand. What the hell is the electoral college and why does it exist? Is it an needed component of our complex republic or a relic from times gone by? Helping us muddle through this is Dr. David Henkin, History Professor at UC Berkeley and Author of several books including , "Becoming America" where he discusses the EC at length. Comedic guests are: James Adomian, Baron Vaughn, and Dave Anthony.
