    if it tips the balance in the electoral college - you bet.
    how many presidents have won the election without a majority of the popular vote? Bush was the last one.

    You're talking about pretty much everyone who was ever elected. Promise made never equals promise kept.

    Ok, so, you think Bush had a mandate despite not winning the popular vote in his first election? Since, apparently...a mandate is defined by the electoral college?

    of course. he won the election by the constitutional process and winning an election is a mandate.

    Ok, cool. Then you have no issue what-so-ever with the invasion of Iraq, being a mandate of the people and all...

    Right?
