4:07 pm
salmon talk about the challenge last seven, eight years. the high cost of health care, that has hit families across this country. the fact that more people in the middle class are being left behind, the fact that there are in america poor today than there were back in when l.b.j. declared the war on poverty, the fact that tryinges in america are to incorporate elsewhere, because we've made it so unattractive to be in this country, the fact that our military is being hollowed out, that russia and china are investing massively in militaries. texas a&m, you look at -- at the same time, you look at what is happening internationally. north africa to russia and the middle east, it's been an awful time for our around the world. i'm reminded of that old joke. a joke about -- when the president went in to cash a
4:08 pm
check at the bank and he didn't have his license. you haven't heard it? look, wer said to him, can't cash a check unless we know exactly who you are. well, what do you want me to do? she said, well, the other day, agassi in here. same problem. putut a target on the wall, his tennis racket -- he banged it. we knew that must be andre agassi. we cashed his check. she said same thing happened mickelson. he put a little cup on the thend, putted that into putt. so we knew that had to be phil mickelson. we cashed his check. can you do?at he said i don't have a clue. said, would you like your cash in 50's or hundreds? [laughter] over these last seven or eight president,ave had a she just hasn't had a clue, when it came time to advancing the
4:09 pm
americas of freedom in and around the world. hasn't had a clue. a positionre in where, once again, we rely on people of experience and like senator john mccain. i don't know who is going to win the presidency. but i know this. whoever wins is going to need somebody who has been to the again east time and time and understands what's going on there, a person who understands what vladimir putin really is, a understands what's happening in asia, the south china sea, a person who understands our military and the of our veterans, a person who understands how america is andhope of millions billions throughout the world. and that man is john mccain! [applause] whoever becomes president is going to need good judgment to people arethe right for the supreme court. whoever becomes president is going to want to have someone work across the aisle, because of all the challenges i just mentioned under president
4:10 pm haven't been of all those challenges, they're unlessng to get overcome republicans and democrats can work together. see, we have this thing called the constitution. and under the constitution, there are checks and balances. i know sometimes it's we don't gethen our own way. but the founders were brilliant sayingelieve inspired in we're gonna have to get americans to work together from two sides of the aisle to make happen. and john mccain has shown that you can have principle and and strength and work with good-minded people on the other side of the aisle to get things done. and the "getmccain it done" attitude in washington before!er [cheering] >> and one more thing. this. mention they are sweeping this country in certain parts, also in europe of the world, a sense of populism, a distrust of institutions. towards government. and that's very understandable, because government has failed so
4:11 pm
again,ople, time and here and other places. but part of that frustration and because people don't have trust in the people who are in government. people ofy needs character and integrity. and i don't know anyone who taller than john mccain when it comes to heroism and and proven integrity.

4:30 pm
hours. demandive on c-span, on at or listen to our live coverage using the free c-span radio app. >> at the cable isisrosen presi the constitution center, long-time c-span guest over the years. good morning. guest: good morning. host: we asked you to come op and talk about this thing called the electoral college. so much is made of the 270 electoral votes. we want to learn how folks get there. why don't you start us off by explaining what the electoral college is, who put it together, and when, and why. guest: wonderful. we have to start with the constitution. i want viewers to read the constitution. you can have a pocket constitution like the national constitution center's great pocket constitution or we have this incredible new app that i think i've told you about. go to the app store and down load interactive constitution and you find this amazing tool that's cosponsored by the federalist society and the
4:31 pm
american constitution society, the leading liberal and conservative lawyers organizations in america where the top liberal and conservative scholars write about every clause of the constitution describing what they agree and disagree about so you can click on the electoral college and read it and see what agreement and disagreement there is about what it means. in the electoral college which is article 2 section 1 there are clauses 2 and 3, says, each state shall appoint in such manner as the legislatures thereof may direct a number of electors equal to the whole number of senators and representatives to which the state may be entitled in the congress but no senator or representative or person holding an office of trust or profit under the united states shall be appointed an elector. that first part just says how many electors each state gets. in d.c., for example, thanks to one -- amendment, gets gets three electors basically. two senators plus the one
4:32 pm
congressperson it would have gotten were it otherwise entitled to an elector. sorry. that's the 23rd amendment is the d.c. electorate. not the 22nd. it goes on to say congress may determine the time of choosing the elections in which they shall give their votes and they shall be the same throughout the united states. where did this come from? basically some framers, alexander hamilton, the rap star of the moment, thought the electoral college was the most perfect part of the constitution. he thought it was the part that everyone would agree was the best part. the framers rejected the possibility of direct election. ames wilson, who was the popular sovereignty said why not just have the people elect the president? the framers didn't want that because they were afraid of a dem gog being chosen. they mistrusted direct democracy. they thought by creating this wise group of elite, former office holders, you know, people who could filter popular passions, these electors would choose a president. what is so interesting is they
4:33 pm
expected that in many cases the electoral college would be unable to reach a majority decision and the election would be decided by the house of representatives. because the electoral college has no majority then the house gets to decide. that led to an incredible mess which people know, in the election of 1800 under the original system, first choice in the electoral college becomes president and the second choice becomes vice president. in 1800 thomas jefferson and his running mate tied. they each get 73 electoral votes together. they have to go to the house with this incredible drama and thanks to the intervention by hamilton the house vote defeated burr and led to the duel which killed hamilton. that was such a mess and a final part of the great constitutional story that framers once again amend the electoral college through the 12th amendment. here i want you to go to the interactive constitution viewers. it is so interesting.
4:34 pm
ou could read an essay and the electoral, the 12th amendment is considered so uncontroversial that both the federalist society and american constitution society said just a single scholar could write about it. you click on the 12th amendment and sanford levinson says there are a bunch of really interesting parts about the 12th amendment. one is if it does go to the house, the house picks from the top three votes as president and the senate pigs from the top three -- two vote getters as vice president. that was important in the election of 1824 when henry clay might have been part of the mix but he was excluded because he wasn't in the top three. basically the 12th amendment takes out that weird system where you could have a president and vice president tying, acknowledging the difference of the party system and says you have to vote for president and vice president separately. host: let me put the phone numbers on the bottom of the screen for jeffrey rosen who runs the national constitution center. we have lines and calls we hope
4:35 pm
to come in in the next couple minutes. we'll get right to them about the electoral college. so take us further through history, then. because this electoral college process while still in place has not necessarily worked perfectly. correct? guest: despite the hope of alexander hamilton it has not worked perfectly. there were two occasions when the election has been decided by the house rather than the electoral college. then there were four occasions when the loser of the popular votes or rather the winner of the popular vote lost the electoral college. let's talk about those. the two times when the house decided election were the famous elections of 1800 which we just talked about and also 1824, which was an incredible battle where andrew jackson who won 99 electoral votes, john quincy adams 84, william crawford 41, henry clay 37. clay is excluded because he is not in the top three and the house chose john quincy adams
4:36 pm
who got fewer electoral and popular votes than jackson, infuriating the jackson supporters although jackson went on to win the next time around. then we have these four really dramatic times when the winner of the popular vote loses the electoral college. many people remember the election of 2000 bush v. gore where al gore won the popular vote but the supreme court stopped a recount and as a result george bush was awarded florida's electoral votes and won the election. that happened three other times. n 1876, which was an amazing prefigureation of 2000. once again there was a dispute between electoral votes out of florida. samuel tilden the democrat wins the popular vote. hays the republican claims he's won florida. so congress creates an electoral commission and the tie-breaking vote is cast by republican supreme court
4:37 pm
justice handing the election to the republican candidate. it was a dramatic story and that led to a congressional law being passed which determines how to resolve disputes today. two other occasions, one is 1824 which we talked about where adams wins even though he has lost both the electoral and the popular vote. the final one i forgot this but the national constitution center which you have to visit in philadelphia, this beautiful museum of we the people on independence hall with gorgeous copies of the constitution and bill of rights and declaration of independence as well as this beautiful educational center which you can learn about online with the interactive constitution, we have this great exhibit. the fourth example which i forgot until i went to the exhibit was grover cleveland running against benjamin harrison. cleveland narrowly wins popular vote by 1% or 2% but harrison gets 233 electoral votes to
4:38 pm
cleveland's 168. he wins the election. i guess the electorate must have been angry because they retaliated by re-electing cleveland the next time around making him the only president to serve two nonconsecutive terms. host: before we get to calls, one question. who are these electors? where do they come from? how are they chosen? what are their duties? guest: great question. we know they may not be any senator or representative or person holding an office of trust or profit under the united states. but otherwise it is entirely up to the states to determine who the electors are, rules under which they can be chosen, and how they are allocated. so they can be state office holders, former officials, they can be local citizens. and most states, 48 of the states basically have a winner take all system where if you win the state and popular vote
4:39 pm
you get all the electors. but two states have an allocated system where you can get a portion of the entire thing. that is maine and nebraska. there's a huge bonus to winning a particular state. now, there have been a bunch of proposals to either require allocation of proportional votes across the board, proposals to can the electoral college and have a national popular vote and even a really interesting proposal that all of the states would agree to vote for in the electoral college a winner of the national popular vote which would basically have the same effect but those reform proposals are probably contested and people disagree. host: a lot more process to talk about in hisary to talk about, jeffrey rosen, calls first. up first from sebastian, florida, question or comment about the electoral college? caller: aside from the
4:40 pm
electoral college the board of governors is not known by anybody in the country and yet they own the republicans and the democrats. the second thing is, hillary id not too long ago to control the legal population we would have abortions. we didn't like it when hittler killed 10 million jews. we slaughtered 60 million babies in this country. we should be very proud of ourselves. host: let's here from mickey from
4:41 pm
4:42 pm
as for the fears of a demagogue, the question is what the founders would have made. they did not trust democracy in any form. from the original election of state senators to the electoral , they did not anticipate a rise of the party system. mess is caused by the rise of the republican and democratic choosingwith elites people on partisanship instead of the public interest.
4:43 pm
there will be a national conversation about what the founders would have made of the that mayd the forces have diversion from that vision. i will get you an answer to that mathematical question. i have been following the thetitution and i have read minutes from james madison at the convention and he was for the popular vote. there were four states that never would have voted and that is why they had the electoral college, to satisfy the slave
4:44 pm
states and get them to vote. is,uestion to the gentleman why hasn't the electoral college been done away with? this has no place in today's world. >> it is in next one question and you are absolutely right. of thegest supporter electoral college were slave states. a pleasure to be here with all of you to welcome obama back to new hampshire. you know, eight years ago, new hampshire and america made obamay when we elected president of the united states.

4:46 pm
and, the reduction of nuclear weapons. having theg to miss obamas in the white house? the best thank you we can give to them, after all the sacrifices, is to make sure the sacrifices were not in vain. we need to build on the progress of the last eight years. why we need to elect hillary clinton the next president. she will make us proud, as
4:47 pm
president, just as she has throughout this campaign. she has shown toughness, resilience, compassion, and heart. she has stood tall while enduring a barrage of lies and sexism. those attacks are coming from the least qualified, most ill-prepared person we have ever nominated to run for president of the united states. but, you know, every time donald trump has attacked his better-qualified, more experienced, better-prepared female opponent, it has struck a
4:48 pm
chord with women across the country. donald made those attacks, he struck a chord with us. women vote. nasty yes. we vote. on tuesday, we can reject the bigotry, the hatred, the nastiness, the name-calling of anald trump and we can elect woman who understands that america is stronger together.

4:53 pm
senator, i will continue our fight to make college more affordable, to protect the environment, to ensure that women have access to the health services that they need. and, to keep america safe. vision that we share as democrats. this is what obama has fought for and delivered over these years. it is the vision that hillary clinton will fight for, as our next president.

4:59 pm
yes. i mean, we have one in philly, but michelle is talking there and i will not get any attention. i want to take some time to thank some very special people gotput everything they've into this campaign across america, all of the grassroots organizers who work every single day. they do not get a lot of attention. started on my first campaign. they pick up the phone's. they hit the streets. they live and breathe the hard work of change. i could not be prouder of them. they are the best organizers on the planet and i could not be more proud of you. thank you, organizers. i love you back. i do.
5:00 pm
one more thing. and -- ok!y i cannot hear you. but, i appreciate you! [applause] [booing] chants] president obama: i love you, too. i do. so, we have one more day. we can choose the politics of blame and divisiveness and resentment. the politicshoose of "stronger together."
5:01 pm
can choose to continue the journey of progress or whether it goes out the window. think about where we were eight years ago. i realize that some of you were 10. you were watching the collodion. odeon.ching nickel you had josh and drake. you had icarly. spongebobsehold, ruled. not all of you were paying attention. allow me to reprise what was going on. longre living through wars, the worst economic crisis in years, but because of the american people and good decisions about what might help
5:02 pm
working families, we turned the page. into 15turned job loss million new jobs. andmes and wages are up poverty is down by more than any time in the last 30 years. 20 million americans have health insurance that did not before. we doubled our production of clean energy. we became the world leader in fighting climate change. more of our men and women in uniform. we took out osama bin laden. reality.equality is a high school graduation is at an all-time high.
5:03 pm
over these eight years, across all 50 states, i have seen what has always made america great. i have been asking you, the american people, people of every state, who know that we are stronger together, young people, old people, black, white, latino, asian, native american, people with disabilities, gay, they all pledge of allegiance to the red, white, and blue. there is one candidate who has dedicated her life to that america and that is hillary clinton.
5:04 pm
hil-ar-y! -- but -- make no mistake, all of that progress goes down the drain, if we do not win tomorrow. new hampshire, though small, is important. there are scenarios where hillary does not win, if she does not win new hampshire. it depends on you. i know this has been a long campaign. i know it has been full of negative ads, distractions, noise. i want you to tune all of that out and focus. the choice you face in the voting booth could not be more clear. is temperamentally unfit to be commander in chief.
5:05 pm
-- this is not just my opinion. this is the opinion of many republicans. over the weekend, the campaign took his twitter account away from him. closest advisers -- if your closest advisors do not ts, how canith twee they trust you with the nuclear codes? you can't do it. he is uniquely unqualified to be the american chief executive. he says he is a business guy. we have a lot of men and women who do not try to succeed by stiffing small businesses that do work for them or stiffing
5:06 pm
workers what they owe. this is the first candidate in decades to hide his tax returns, probably because he has not paid federal income tax. he thinks that is smart. that means he is not making contributions to supporting our troops, building roads. don't boo. vote. new hampshire, donald trump cannot hear your boos. he can hear your votes. he has nothing serious on jobs. there has not been enough talk about the economy in the election. you know why? we created jobs for 73 months in
5:07 pm
a row now. wages were rising. the unemployment rate is at the lowest levels in nearly nine years. donald trump, generally, he avoids facts or denies them. he says this is a disaster. a disaster! listen, i just came from michigan. if you want to know what a real disaster looks like, think back to that state with the auto industry on its back. state plants across the that were shut down are now doing double shifts. you know what donald trump's idea for the auto industry that he suggested was?
5:08 pm
he suggested that michigan should send the auto jobs to states that pay less and making michigan workers suffer less pay to get their jobs back. don't boo. what are you supposed to do? does this sound like somebody who cares about working people? would this be a good way to bring back the jobs, sending them to places where they pay less? manufacturing growing again for the first time since 1990 and hillary is going to achieve that goal. she has plans to grow manufacturing, boost wages, help with college debt. this is why she should be the next president of the united states.
5:09 pm
magnifiesire -- this who you are. it shines a spotlight. if you denigrate minorities when running for office, if you call immigrants criminals or rapists, if you mock people with disabilities, if you call people dogs, and score them est, imagine how you will conduct yourself in office. if you say you know more than the generals when you cannot tell the difference between a sunni, this is how you will conduct yourself as commander in chief. it is bad enough to be arrogant.
5:10 pm
to be arrogant and not know anything. accept the support of if you shutsors, down reporters who say things threaten toke, throw reporters in jail in the middle of a presidential debate, if you discriminate against people of different faiths, that happens in other countries. not this one. this is the united states of america. you know, vladimir putin may think it is ok that i do not
5:11 pm
think it is ok. on. donald trump is uniquely unqualified to hold this job. the good news is, new hampshire, you are uniquely qualified to .ake sure he does not you have a candidate who is worthy of your vote. probably the most qualified person to ever run for this office -- hillary clinton. there haveay that been times where i have been time, but i'm my going to level with you right now.
5:12 pm
we have come to accept the crazy as normal. this strategy of repeating attacks and outright lies over and over. are, itr how false they creates a cloud of dust. lips andd to bite my listen to the nonsense that has been said about hillary. i know about hillary. i have ran against hillary. she worked for me. this is somebody who has dedicated her life to making the country better. this is somebody who cares about working families. she comes from a working family. about how she got her start. she was not much older than most
5:13 pm
of the folks here. was going undercover from school to school to make sure that minority kids were getting an equal shot. she has not stopped fighting for justice and equality. she has not stopped fighting for kids ever since and she will be a smart and steady president. she will work her heart out. forwill fight for equal pay equal work. she will make sure that we have a higher minimum wage and a family leave that people can afford to use and she will make sure that this economy is for everybody. unlike her opponent, she actually knows what is going on
5:14 pm
in the world and she is respected. she will work hard to keep america respected, strong, and safe. she will not turn people against each other to win election. she will be a leader for all, even those who do not vote for her. she knows that we are stronger together. if you wante, hillary to continue the progress, she will need allies in the senate, like maggie hassan. her witht just stick republicans in congress who promise more dysfunction in washington, more shutdowns, more hearings,es, more more investigations, blocking supreme court an nominations.
5:15 pm
they apparently think that only republican presidents should nominate justices. if you like gridlock, vote for the republicans. e's opponent is kind of running like she is a democrat. in washington, she supports mitch mcconnell. a majority that has consistently been about saying no to everything. healthports eliminating care for 20 million americans who already have it. doke.t buy that okey- there is a clear choice involved here. maggie hassan will make sure we have a democratic majority to work for the things you care about and her opponent will not. it is a clear choice. america can do better than gridlock. if you care about creating jobs,
5:16 pm
childcare, equal pay for women, higher wages for workers, you have to vote for democrats up and down the ticket. people like maggie, people who put you ahead of politics, who involve all of us in the work of moving the country forward. that is absolutely what the country comes down to. in aost important office democracy is not the presidency, citizen!mayor, it is that is the most important office. abouts why we do not talk i. we talk about "we.:" we the people. yes, we can. "yes, i can."
5:17 pm
it is not what a person says he can do for us. it is about what we do together through the work of self-government. this is where you come in. you hold the most important office in democracy. it depends on you. steep andthe odds are the road is long, it is ordinary people who make the difference. that is why patriots chose revolution over tyranny. women found the courage to reach for the ballot, marching across a bridge in selma. collectiveanized bargaining and better wages. you make these things happen. we hold these truths that all
5:18 pm
men are created equal and that endowed by our creators. we have to look at the arc of history that has made america great. whatever credibility i have, as your president, i am asking you to trust me. i have already voted for hillary and i am absolutely confident that, when she is president, the country will be in good hands.
5:19 pm
especially for the young people who are here today, you know, it often that you discover that you can make a difference, where you have a chance to shape history and the world is watching us right now. this is one of these moments. do not let it slip away. do not give away that power. we are not divisive. we are not mean-spirited. we are not going to go backwards. we can elect a leader who has spent her life trying to move this country forward. anybody who worked hard and cares enough can achieve. adds,all the rallies and
5:20 pm
this is outside of my hands. the fate of our democracy depends on what you do in the voting booth. it depends on what you tell your friends and neighbors and relatives. this power, this legacy, do not fall for the easy cynicism. hillary's opponent wants you to think about that. mitch mcconnell want you to not vote. in some states, they have made it harder. your vote does matter. difference makes a -- your voice makes a difference. i want to leave you with a last story.
5:21 pm
i want to leave you with a last story. this is for the young people he re. i want you to pay attention. you will not remember this, but when iran for the not aency, the truth is, lot of people gave me a chance. i was a skinny guy with a funny name. pictures ofat the me speaking back then and i look really young. so, initially, one we started the campaign, the odds were not for us and we had a lot of states to cover and i had never won a national campaign. we had to try to get any support or endorsements we could. i would fly down to south
5:22 pm
carolina, go down to south carolina for a state banquet and i asked for an endorsement for support. obama, you like you, are a little green behind the ears, but i like you. i will endorse you, if you come to my hometown of greenwood, south carolina. i must have had too much wine. i said, "ok." i was feeling a little desperate. months and i1.5 had been coming to new hampshire and calling people to raise money. i am exhausted. i am a little grouchy. greenwood and i get
5:23 pm
in at around midnight. i am exhausted, dragging my bags through the airport terminal. i get to the hotel and all i want to do is sleep. i get a tap from a staffer on my shoulder. he said, "senator, you do know that you have to wake up at 6:30 tomorrow morning, right?" that state legislaturor you promised to go to greenwood for, that is tomorrow. i go in and the alarm goes off. i feel terrible. i'm exhausted. i think i am coming down with a cold. i open up the curtains and it is pouring rain.
5:24 pm
i make coffee and i get the newspaper. i open it up and there is a bad story about me in the new york times. i get dressed, shaved, walked out groggy. my umbrella blows open. does that ever happened to you? i am just soaked. i get into the car and it is 1.5 hours to greenwood. we are driving and driving. it doesn't seem like we are going anywhere. sheets of rain pouring. we finally get to greenwood, although you cannot tell. and, there are a couple of little stores and a stoplight. and il up to a fieldhouse
5:25 pm
get out in the rain and i walk in, having driven 1.5 hours and people there and they did not look any happier to see me than i was to see them. p, not really, dam excited, didn't know why they were there. i went around the room and i talked to everybody. they are not really feeling it. and, so, i am about to make my pitch. mustering myself to do this quick and get out. suddenly, i hear a voice from up!"ack shout, "fired everybody in the room says, "fired up."
5:26 pm
i hear another voice say, "ready to go." i did not know what was going on. i thought these people were crazy. i looked in the back of the room and there is a middle-aged woman. dressed like she just came from church and she has a big church hat and a gold tooth. it turns out that she is a holder of a position at the naacp office and is a private detective. she is like a private eye. it is a hard to think that you would not see her coming. she is very colorful. knownntly, she is wherever she goes by saying
5:27 pm
this chant. everybody knows her. they know that when she says "fired up." they say "fired up." they do this thing, which is kind of strange. the thing is, she keeps on doing it. does.ody the interesting thing is, after starting to get kind of fired up. i am starting to feel like i am rated to go. go.of -- i am ready to all of those negative thoughts drifted away and we had a great meeting. they all said they would support me and that they would go out and work. i saw myreenwood and
5:28 pm
staff and i said, "are you fired up?" they would say, "i am fired up, boss." you how aes to show voice can change a room. , if he did change -- if it can change a room, it can change a city. if it can change a city, it can change a state. if it can change a state, it can change the nation. if they can change the nation, it can change the world. i have just one question for you, new hampshire? are you fired up? are you ready to go? fired up? ray to go? -- ready to go?
