Bush v. Kerry?

Could Colorado be the next Florida?

Chris from Politics Blog says, "Yes,"

A proposed amendment to the Colorado Constitution would award that state's 9 electoral votes proportionally based on percentage of the popular vote (instead of winner take all). It seems likely to pass, and will take effect on November 3rd (the day following the election). It is intended to apply to this year's vote in the electoral college.

Chris suggests that Colorado's amendment, if enacted, could be vulnerable to state and federal constitutional and statutory challenges. Although he does not answer the legal questions involved (he's a political pundit, not a tea leaf reader!), he certainly highlights the legal issues that will arise if the Colorado initiative passes.

It could be an awful mess, and if ever we needed a federal court to relaxen its justiciability requirements, it's now.
