Eliminate the electoral college

To the Editor: 

It's fine that Bush called for the Palestinians to democratically elect new leaders, but what if Arafat made the same demand on the United States? The hypocrisy of a president who was selected, even though he had half a million fewer votes than his opponent, is not lost on the rest of the world. We need election reform in our own country; eliminate the electoral college. Each person's vote should count equally.
