8. My humble opinion: Advocate for a national primary

I realize that 4 years ago there were folks advocating for all caucus voting and no primaries due to cost. I never favored that, but it seems germane.

My proposal:

On or about 2/1, registered Dems in all 50 states vote to narrow the field to no more than 4.

On or about 4/1 we either pick a candidate or narrow to 2.

If necessary, we vote one more time on or about 6/1.

No more "Iowa and New Hampshire vote first."
No more delegates
No convention - candidate picks the veep. If the candidate won't do it, the House Democrats can pick from a list of those wanting the gig.

... and if it were up to me, all of this voting would be by mail.

One last thing: I'm a Hillary supporter, but I agree with you 100% on ending the caucus process. That said, I'd be honored if you'd block me from the group. You've blocked all my friends, and I suspect you left me off the list because most of you have me on ignore. I feel left out. Oh - and can we at least agree to fight like Hell to win back the Senate? Thanks.
