Bleeding Heartland: Saving the Electoral College will not keep Iowa relevant

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Both Governor Chet Culver and Secretary of State Mike Mauro have now
come out against a bill that would award Iowa's electoral votes to the
winner of the nationwide popular vote. Their opposition in effect
kills any chance of the bill advancing. Although it has been voted out
of committee in the Iowa Senate, it may never come to a floor vote
there or a committee vote in the Iowa House. I don't know what so many
people have against one person, one vote for president, just like we
have for every other elected office. ... If the governor wants to buy
into Republican propaganda about this bill, fine. But let's not
pretend Iowa is bound to be a swing state forever.
