The presidential race of 2004 is shaping up to be as close a contest as in 2000, when the popular vote did not decide the election. Diane and her guests take a look at the history of the Electoral College, how it works, and proposals to change the way our presidents are selected.

Guests

  • Richard Dunham Washington Bureau Chief for the Houston Chronicle.
  • James Thurber professor and director of the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies at American University
