“If Reince Priebus from Kenosha, Wisconsin, is the Republican ‘establishment,’ God help us,” says the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus. His physical presence is almost as unprepossessing as James Madison’s was, and his demeanor is self-deprecating. But with meticulous — Madisonian, actually — subtlety, he is working to ameliorate a difficulty that has existed for two centuries and in 2012 wounded the GOP.

The Constitution’s Framers considered the process to select a president so important that they made it one of the four national institutions they created. Three were Congress, the Supreme Court and the presidency. The presidential selection system was based on the electoral college, under which the nomination of candidates and the election of the president occurred simultaneously.
