An example of why the Electoral College is Good

If Mexico had an electoral college, there would not be any possible reason to recount all the votes in the entire country. Even though the overall total was close, the PAN party candidate overwhelmingly carried the states in the northern part of the country and the PRD candidate generally carried Mexico city and the southern states. Could you imagine if it were necessary that we had to recount the ballots for the entire country in 2000 and not just the ballots in Florida?

A leftist candidate claiming fraud robbed him of the presidency led hundreds of thousands of marchers through Mexico's capital Sunday to demand a vote-by-vote recount in the tight election apparently won by his conservative opponent. . . .

Felipe Calderon, of President Vicente Fox's conservative National Action Party led by about 244,000 votes in the official count after the July 2 election.
