Emi, you make a good point. I didn’t say it was politically possible to enact this. Just that I think it would be a good idea. I think that the only real possibilities to get something like passed are (1) the possibility that the “establishment” politicians get so frightened/upset about being “primaried out” of their jobs by extreme factions in their own parties that they are willing to try a system like this to keep themselves in office and (2) adoption by the voters in states with an initiative process — David Grace
