I would think that placing states in groups of 5 to 10 and holding one primary/caucus per week for 5 to 10 weeks could be a better way to choose candidates. The bundles of states that shared an election day could be chosen by the Party to represent similar or dissimilar voting populations depending on what the Party thought was most important in the process. The bundles could remain mostly the same from election to election and which bundle went first and which bundle went last rotated. I have never heard anyone ever propose such a system so I won't hold my breath.


The primary system is largely irrelevant, since absent political revolution, we've completed our descent into an oligarchy.

I see only billionaires as presidents going forward -- and health care that's triple the cost of other industrialized countries within 5 years.

Start learning arithmetic people.
