Electoral College in Action--Thrilling, Pulsating Action

For as powerful as the Electoral College is in our Constitution (it only, you know, determines the election of America's president), the mechanics of it are relatively unknown.

It'll be less foreign to you, however, if you listen to A.J. Higgins's (MPBN) forty-minute recording of Maine's electors in action on Monday, in all its underwhelming splendor.

- John C.L. Morgan

Spoiler alert: All four electors--Jill Duson, Robert O'Brien, Tracie Reed, and Sam Shapiro--voted for...wait for it...President-elect Barack Obama and Vice-President-elect Joe Biden.
