Hillary on the Electoral College: ‘I Think It Needs To Be Eliminated’

‘I said that in 2000 after what happened with Al Gore’

HILLARY: "I said that in 2000 after what happened with Al Gore. I was elected to the Senate that same year, and if you look at our recent history, we've had several candidates, nominees, who have won the popular vote and lost the electoral college. What does that say? That is an anachronism, that was designed for another time no longer works if we've moved toward one person, one vote, that's how we select winners. I was amused after the French election. I think it needs to be eliminated. I'd like to see us move beyond it, yes."
