Gifting political theorists 

This year’s ludicrous election offers too much ammunition to wage a family war. If there is one relative in your family who gets a great kick out debating politics over mincemeat pie, silence Dennis the Menace with a copy of After the Vote: A Guide to the Electoral College by Walter Burns. Available only on the Web at, it’s a comprehensive guide to answering questions on an election too close to call and the Electoral College. Look at it this way — if someone’s going to rant and you’re forced to listen, at least they’ll do it with smarts. $4.95 is a small price to pay.
