    I'm not sure direct election of senators made the Senate any better than it was before.  Can you imagine Senators probably not having to raise 10's of millions of dollars since they only have to convince the state legislature to vote for them.  It could actually make the senate less partisan and the senators more likely to work together instead of endless campaigning.  And people would possibly focus more on the importance of state legislative elections.
