Defending the Electoral College, and federalism, is crucial to our republic

Washington Examiner | Jake Curtis) In the September/October issue of Politico Magazine, Tim Alberta asks an important question: Is the Electoral College doomed?

Last week, Hillary Clinton made clear where she stands on the issue. While Alberta doesn't arrive at a definitive answer, he does a fine job objectively examining both sides of the debate.

However, his analysis, as is often the case when the merits of the Electoral College are analyzed, misses a key benefit of the system our founders established for selecting the nation's executive: the connection to our federal structure.


" But as the plan of the convention aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States. "

-- Alexander Hamilton (Federalist No. 32, 3 January 1788)
