Hillary would be in the White House.
And nobody would be writing stuff like this, a "why Democrats lose" article absurdly indistinguishable from what would have been written if the US president was chosen by a national popular majority and Trump had won that election.
Too many whites are racist and sexist, but that is not why Trump is in the White House.
Trump is in the White House because the US constitution does not award the presidency to the national popular vote winner.
We should do it like the French.
The national popular vote winner gets the job, provided he gets more than half the votes.
If no one gets more than half the votes then another vote is held to decide between the two candidates who did best in the first vote.
And while we're at it we can exclude from eligibility anyone who has not been elected to the senate or a governorship and served a full term, or twice in succession been elected to and served a full term in a seat in the house.
That would keep out at least some of the most notably idiotic and disgraceful amateurs beloved of the brainless fans of reality TV.
And create a commission to enforce eligibility requirements, since nobody right now seems to have that job.
Though, of course, this is a change that will never happen.
