Howard Dean: Scrap Electoral College

Just a week after Gov. Douglas vetoed the popular vote bill, Vermont’s previous governor has come out in favor of moving away from the Electoral College as a method of electing the president.

Howard Dean gave a 10 question interview with TIME magazine this week and he says this when asked, "Do you favor the elimination of the Electoral College?"

Yes. It’s unrepresentative of where the American people are. It was fine for the days of the Pony Express, but it’s not necessary to avoid a popular vote on Presidents now.
