  •  Seems like an easy solution, if the (0+ / 0-)

    party got involved, would be to demand a pledge from all Dems that they'd drop out and endorse the front-running Dem a week before the vote, given a party-run poll that showed them trailing the front-runner by X points.

    So you run like hell against each other until the final week. The state party polls the race. If you're back by 10 percent in a three-Dem race, 5 percent in a five-Dem race, whatever, you've agree to endorse one of the two front-runners. Or something.

    My specifics sucks, but I agree that this seems like a party problem, mostly.
