Is there any hope in the future for election reform in the U.S.?

I think this country is way overdue for election reform. It's obvious that with the system we have now, voting for 3rd party candidates is pointless and essentially equates to a vote for the major political party you'd least like to see in office. As a result, some voters become disillusioned when they don't get everything they want from one candidate in an attempt to vote against another candidate.

How long does everyone here think it will take before we ditch the winner-take-all system, and possibly get something like a parliamentary system or instant run-off voting?
