So imagine if Obama wins the popular vote, but loses the
electoral college. How do you think that would go down?
I could see it not being pretty.

Thoughts?

I would think we are used to that scenario by now, are we not?

Isnt this the same scenario that led to George II's reign? Not much came of that.

If anything you have it backwards.

He has the electoral vote, the popular vote could be the tossup.

Sure, it's happened before- which could be exactly why things would get messy in such a scenario.

Whale, I suspect you're correct. I'm just 'what-iffing' here. I could easily envision riots if Obama were perceived to have been 'cheated'
of a presidency.

There will be a riot in Boston if McCain wins.  Many, many college students in the streets.

I don't know if I'll be out with them, but given that most of my friends will be there...I probably will be too.

At least I'll be able to use my .45ACP to keep the damned kids off my lawn!

As for the Popular vs Electoral College. There's a reason that both parties have whole divisions of lawyers in every battleground state right now. I'm surprised Whale doesn't have a few crashing in his dorm/apt in Florida.
