Instant run off, etc. The bozos in charge aren't ever going to do that -- it'll take going around them to get it done.
Proportional representation is a great idea. Unfortunately it will never happen in the US, not just because the Dems and Reps will campaign against it to make sure they remain the only two parties. It's also because the American people will see it as something those socialist european countries do, and how could any of their ideas be any good?

The belief that the US has the greatest political system in the world, which has some credibility, has led to the belief that the US has the greatest political process in the world, which is very debatable.
