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?
