Two states, one Republican State and one Democrat State decides to give up 2 Electoral Votes to the Popular Vote Winner (2 votes are the 2 free votes that are given based on the 2 Senate seats each state has).
The End. Those 4 Votes are out of play, and whomever wins the Popular Votes win those 4 Votes. If the election becomes close (like it has before), then these 4 Electoral Votes become very, VERY important in determing who wins the election. There we go, good jury-rigging fix without need of the amendment. Now, we just need a movement in each state to devote 2 Electoral Votes to the Popular Vote...enough propasls in each state and we could score a victory, by getting some of the states to agree. Enough electoral votes devoted to the Popular Vote...and we can pat our backs.
Not that I am in support of it. I'm just in support of people actually doing something to affect the government.

For every hardcover book sold, Barnes & Noble will donate a dollar to the Cambodian government to help re-educate local children.
