  •  I think that might be good (0+ / 0-)

    I don't like the fact that its winner take all, essentially, for the White House. Why is does the entire administration have to be dominated by one party or the other when the electorate is basically split? I feel the current system is way to harsh on the losing party.

    There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.

      with the prez and vp elected independently in the first election or two of the US.  They were at each other's throats, just as Biden and Romney would be.   It was changed fairly quickly.

      Not all those who wander are lost.
