Jazz, I’m pretty comfortable with the Electoral College either way, but then again, I actually paid attention during high-school civics.  (Grades notwithstanding.)

I’d find the reaction to a popular-vote loss by Obama interesting in that case interesting.  After all, he’s a populist who has been feted as a man of the people rather than a man of the Establishment.  I don’t think that split outcome with Obama winning the EC while losing the popular vote is at all likely, but if it happened, I’d expect a strange new respect from the media that celebrates Obama for those Estasblishment institutions.
