Can the US System be Reformed?
Given the talk in Washington about whether it is possible to reform the Arab world, I found the discussion this evening on al-Jazeera amusing.
They had an Iraqi analyst on, who said that if there wasn’t a clear break for one of the candidates in the next few hours, the whole process was likely to go into the hands of the lawyers and would be decided in the courts.
The al-Jazeera anchor asked, “Do you believe the American electoral system can be reformed?”
The Iraqi analyst said he thought the problem lay in the dependence on an electoral college rather than direct democracy.
This is getting embarrassing folks.
