There are rules that apply to them.
Their own rules, state election rules (I'm reaching a bit on the terminology), and electoral college rules.
They may try to change the rules, but if their changes go unchallenged, then we end up with something as wrong and contorted as unconstitutional laws.
These actions must be challenged, and the tendency to wave wide dismissive statements must be resisted as well.
I've always found that rules created for the wrong reasons can usually be turned against themselves (the rules can be hacked when ill-conceived).
But, yeah. Ron Paul still gains ground, hearts, and minds.
(Where is Romney's audit the Fed bill?)
All the more reason to push forward and push back.
