Enough about Clin­ton’s votes

Baltimore Sun - - TRUMP TRANSITION - David C. Hill, Bal­ti­more

Re­cently, The Sun pub­lished an ed­i­to­rial that touched on Hil­lary Clin­ton’s over 1 mil­lion vote lead in the pop­u­lar vote for pres­i­dent. A check of any of the tra­di­tional me­dia web­sites cov­ing the elec­tion will con­firm the truth of that (“Your own facts,” Nov. 18). It does not mat­ter! Why is Don­ald Trump go­ing to be sworn in as the 45th pres­i­dent on Jan­uary 20? Be­cause he won the most Elec­toral Col­lege votes. The process has been ba­si­cally the same since Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton took of­fice.

The tilt­ing at wind­mills dis­cus­sion of pop­u­lar votes and chang­ing the Elec­toral Col­lege will only cre­ate bar­ri­ers in the work of mak­ing our coun­try bet­ter than it al­ready is. We just have to find a way to agree — an in­cred­i­bly dif­fi­cult process at times — on what is the best im­proved ver­sion for all of us.
