Debating the Electoral College

For those of you interested in the topic, here Sanford Levinson (arguing against it), John McGinnis and Daniel Lowenstein (arguing for it) debate the merits of the Electoral College. I think Levinson clearly wins the debate as argued there, as there is really no strength in the college that's not also provided by a direct election, the college perverts popular perceptions of the "mandate" afford the winner elected by the college, and of course there are lots of real problems with the college, as Levinson notes.
