What would be worse than Romney or Obama being elected president? Neither of them being elected. Picture Bush Vs Gore II, the sequel, this time played by Mittster and Barry.
The nation’s deeply divided. Polls consistently show them evenly matched. The country has never gotten around to doing away with the horrible Electoral College system. With new voter laws there are plenty of questions about voter disenfranchisement. The stew of potential problems is simmering.
No matter who got the job, they’d be under a cloud of illegitimacy. The losing side would feel cheated and the winning side uneasy. The Bush/Gore fiasco is still in living memory. A second round of electoral turmoil would not be good for the nation.
