i watched her battle through that bogus e-mail deal and vindicated at the end when secretary powell came out. she fought through that, fought through everything and prevailed through it all. at the end we had the russians and fbi deal and she couldn't prevail against them. clinton may have won the po p layer vote but trump easily won the electoral college 304 to clinton's 227. the only thing that still needs to happen is congress must officially certify the results and that won't happen until after the new year. heather and clayton, it is official but not certified. >> still a lot of complaining from people. >> we may see drama on the floor of congress. >> the "washington post" says there's another problem with the electoral college. it makes it harder to fight global warming. they blame george w. bush's woifrn al gore for delaying the response to the issue.
