That is all
The electoral college made sense in the times of a young USA where you could almost write "dragons be here" on the maps, so some people had to represent a region.
Now it's just a fucking joke, considering votes on smaller states can be worth more than 3 votes on bigger states, the winner-takes-it-all system is atrocious and the very fact a president can be elected with only 22% of the popular vote if he plays his/her cards right is, well, utterly stupid.
One of the things the US should do is get rid of such an archaic concept and install direct vote for the president with a alternative vote system.
@ catilena: As a person foreign to the US, I can positively say that Obama is about the only person in politics keeping the US from being absolutely ridiculed, from back to back, by everyone else.
