PrawfsBlawg: Tomorrow's News, Today.
Perhaps PrawfsBlawg can't meet a catchy newspaper-themed television show from the 90s, but it does have some predictive power. Back on January 7, a few of you may recall that I wrote about proposed legislative changes to the Electoral College in a handful of states. I suggested three reasons I wouldn't be concerned: that there are House-Presidential mismatches; that such proposals are nothing new and rarely go anyplace; and that there exists a Rawlsian concern that a plan might backfire tomorrow.
Well, it took a few weeks, but everyone's finally coming around. Joshua Spivak at The Week writes about how temporary gain may not pay off in the long-run. Nate Cohn at The New Republic called the move "self-defeating." Rick Hasen wrote at Slate last week not to worry, because such worries are often overblown.
But you, PrawfsBlawg reader, knew all that, because you read what I had to say three weeks ago.
