Its enough to make your head spin. Imagine:

A 269-269 tie in the electoral college after the November U.S. presidential election. The vote goes to the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. And we wind up with President Obama and Vice President Palin . . .

Think its impossible? Think again. Read"Electoral College Doomsday."

A very good analysis of a very tight presidential race. Of course there will be the usual suspects who demand that this is a reason why the Electoral College system should be scrapped. Tell that to the residents of the smaller states, whose votes and influence the Framers had the good sense to protect with the creation of this complex, but meaningful system of electing a president.
