Don't forget Kamala Harris, the first woman VP of the USA.

Yes, fiction is the best motivator.

Clinton did win if it was any other democratic nation on Earth because she got more votes.

The US is a Democratic Constitutional Republic, our system uses the EC system and that is how the founding fathers wanted it so that each state gets equal representation and not have one or two states control the outcome of an election, let's just say, if it were reversed and Texas and Florida would win the vote every time Republicans would win and you think the left and the nation be fine with that? That would mean a Republican would win each time, there is no way the left would stand for that, this is what the founding fathers didn't want.

The EC is not equally distributed but essentially based on population like the House in the end. The problem is that states have left their electors in a "winner take all" situation which is there prerogative but not something that one can call democratic. It's basically a mathematical oddity at this point that steals elections according to unpredictable rules.

Neither is going by the popular vote based on the largest population of the state or the population of these states leaning politically to one side giving it a political advantage to either side of their perspective parties.

I disagree, but that is the system we have, it's worked so far the way it was intended, so I prefer it so.

The USA system is definitely broken, When consecutive President are known social misfit. One being filmed touching up young girls and the other a depraved rapist openly stating on tape "just gab them on and stick your tongue down their throats." about when meeting females. Now let look at the derange women put up as President candidate Clinton. All there are owned by the Jewish lobby. So the system works, yeah nah. Only an uneducated fools would settling for such a political system.
