National Popular Vote: The conversation continues
A one-liner in the Detroit Free Press says Bayh is "revved" for his involvement in the campaign.
Hendrik Hertzberg for the New Yorker talks about the logic of the plan, its constitutionality, who'd benefit and last Friday's press conference.
The Toledo Blade runs an editorial on the plan. The Blade favors an all-out amendment over the agreement, arguing, "Such a procedure inevitably would be challenged strongly on constitutional grounds."
No such challenge is inevitable. States technically may do what they want with their electoral votes. The plan simply lets states harmonize what they'll do: award all votes to the national popular winner. (See Hertzberg's piece.)
