For those who missed CurrentTV this week, former Vice President Al Gore made some news. According to a clip posted on The Hill's website, the man who won the popular vote in 2000 announced he no longer supports the Electoral College, which coincidentally he lost.
"I think that it's time," Gore says of the need for a new system. "I think our country would be stronger and better if it went according to the popular vote."
The development comes shortly after The New York Times published a glowing article about how Gore had come to peace with his new life, even as a close friend conceded, "I doubt he’ll ever be totally-every-day-at-peace with losing in 2000." Apparently not.
