I fully expected Oprah to end her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes with, “And so, therefore, I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States!” Hey, I’d vote for her. The Democrats would do well to find someone like her with her powerful voice and command of the podium. I can see her turning trump inside out, if he’s still in the office come 2020. I also like Elizabeth Warren, and I’d vote for her, too, but I’m not the typical voter. I’m informed, engaged and serious about voting every chance I get.
As we get closer to the election, I’m going to be doing more about that anachronistic, loathsome institution, the electoral college. It would be wonderful if a Democrat won the Electoral College vote but not the popular vote. One more election like that and we’d be even in the modern era.
