Is it an idea whose time has come, or just sour grapes? After watching his Democrats lose two presidential elections in 16 years despite winning the popular vote, Congressman Gene Green of Houston wants to abolish the Electoral College. Rep. Green last month introduced legislation in the U.S. House calling for aÂ Constitutional Amendment to do it.

We talk with Congressman Green about his proposal, and we also talk withÂ associate professor of law Josh Blackman from South Texas College of Law HoustonÂ to discuss this proposalâs potential.
