Getting rid the Electoral College would be stupid but I did agree with them on this point about the primary system (minus the smart assed comment about "Norman Rockwell America"):

The dominance of Iowa and New Hampshire -- two small and not-terribly-representative throwbacks to Norman Rockwell America -- distorts the entire race, forcing contenders to shape issues designed to catch fire with the locals.

What about maintaining the electoral college but making it a points system thus eliminating the kooks who may vote as a protest vote and to be honest I don't much trust those appointed to the college - party hacks and cronies mostly and make the college proportional and not winner take all (or only making it winner take all if the winner gets over 50%)?

With that said the Electoral system (if not a college of people) must stand.
