With AZ-2 now officially going for McSally, all that is left is the Vermont governorship. One would assume that the legislature would choose Shumlin due to him winning the PV and the legislature being democratic, but Milne continues to push the members of the legislature to choose him instead.

There is no assuming. The Leg' has never chosen a candidate for the Governorship who didn't win the popular vote. It's not an uncommon occurrence, either.

The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

Typically, one candidate or the other concedes (like Dubie did in 2010). In this case, Milne is not conceding. He is instead trying to get the democratic members of the legislature to vote as their state house districts did (Milne carried some of those districts), and that along with unanimous support from republicans is (according to him) enough to win.

That won't happen, the political backlash for Milne would be tremendous.  Democrats didn't do that when Douglas got less than 50% in 2002, either.

I never got the point of swearing in an elected official past a week after the election.
