Seems like we've been through this before, say 225 years ago. I think you can only "revoke" something that was bestowed. I think if it was taken by force, it must be retaken in the same manner. Besides, we haven't failed to elect a president, we're just keeping the rest of the world in suspense. We all know who was elected. And tell the old girl to come on over. There are no free rides here, you have to get elected, even if the process is sometimes combersome, it's far superior to birthright. NS
