So, this is a question that has been bothering me for years  . . .  If, in the US, we agree that the way we choose a President  is by voting for an electoral college and they then choose the president -- if we all agree that that is how its done, isn't that a CONSENSUS??

concerns and improve the model etc. Alternatives, scenarios etc. This step
answers the questions of substance and enables the whole group to deal with
the key dimensions of the plan together.
