At first sight, you’d imagine that her name was Colleen, and you’d be right. How could you not look at that face and think anything but … Irish?
I had finally called (after much angst and hanging up several times) and she remembered who I was (good, because at that point I wasn't sure I knew who I was), and I was going on a date with Marcy!
In reality, it was the Framers of the Constitution who came up with the Electoral College, not the Founding Fathers. The basic difference is that the Founding Fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Framers wrote the Constitution. While the first set of Framers were actually the Founders also and wrote the Articles of Confederation, the second set of Framers (the party of the second part) wrote the actual Constitution once it was discovered that the Articles would not be sufficient to actually govern the country. But the Framers just couldn't bring themselves to allow ordinary people to vote for President directly. After the 2016 Presidential election, how many people are asking, "how's that Electoral College thing workin' out for ya?"
