Funny How Conservatives are suddenly interested in the popular vote, when in 2000 Conservatives referred to it as irrelevant.

___________

That makes no sense...I was saying that if you win with 51% of the vote you don't have a mandate. Bush clearly didn't have one in 2000 thus why his first big piece of legislation NCLB was co-authroed by Ted Kennedy.

Obama did have a mandate in 2008, but he mis-read it. It was for fixing the economy, not National Healthcare.

But with a divided Congress, who has a mandate?
