Hoping to sidestep popular elections and transcend politics, the framers concocted a bizarre, untried method of selecting the president. Little did they suspect how their system would be gamed, from 1789 through 2012. Ray Raphael’s latest book is Mr. President: How and Why the Founders Created a Chief Executive (Alfred A. Knopf, 2012). His several other books on the Founding Era include A People’s History of the American Revolution and Founding Myths: Stories That Hide Our Patriotic Past. A complete list of his works can be found at www.rayraphael.com.
