I think its actually possible this year for Obama to win the electoral college and lose the popular vote. Thats what I'm rooting for anyway, because it could prod some red states into signing onto the national popular vote interstate compact.

“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
