Well, I was there. The twenty electors voted as ten people protested outside, as this AP story notes. The whole thing went off without a hitch, but not so in Minnesota, where one "faithless elector" cast a vote for John Edwards for president, rather than John Kerry. I spoke briefly at lunch, just to congratulate them for having done their constitutional duty, and to remind them that self-government is the subject of our story. I concluded by reading Lincolns Fragment on the Constitution and the Union.
