Hillary Clinton is currently on her bitterness tour, blaming everyone and everything but herself for losing the 2016 election. Donald Trump is to blame, sexism is to blame, James Comey is to blame, the media is to blame, and that “god-forsaken Electoral College” is also to blame.
That’s what she calls it in her new blame-all book, What Happened. CNN’s Anderson Cooper quoted from the passage in a recent interview and said she makes no bones about calling for repeal. That’s because she would’ve won if the election were based on the popular vote, which she won by what the left claims is nearly three million votes.
“Do you think the Electoral College should be abolished?” Cooper asked.
“I said that in 2000 after what happened to the 2000 election with Al Gore,” Clinton said. “If you look at our recent history, you’ve had several candidates — nominees — who have won the popular vote and lost the Electoral College.”
“What does that say?” she continued. “It says that anachronism that was designed for another time no longer works. We’ve moved toward one person, one vote. That’s how we select winners.”
“I think it needs to be eliminated,” Clinton reiterated. “I’d like to see us move beyond it, yes.”
And we'd like to see us move beyond talking about the myriad reasons you lost, yes.
