Electoral College Map

Does it seem right to anyone that California carries just over 20% of the electoral votes required to WIN the Presidency. WTF is that about. Could you IMAGINE what it would be like if the electoral college were operated like the Senate, as opposed to the House of Representatives - there are 24 "red" states (state's voting for Bush) and only 12 "blue" states (Kerry states) - Bush would only have to win 2 of the "up for grabs" states - which btw, include FL, Nevada and Michigan - all states Bush is expected to carry.

In any case, the whole thing about CA accounting for 20% bugs me, rather immensely.
