PROBLEM: Primaries staged over several months may eliminate the
         overall most popular candidate. (I.E. McCain)

SOLUTION: Hold all primaries on the same day.

Okay, I'm zeroing in on another big problem here, the primary

The big problem here is not only when the primaries are held, but
the fact that individual states have different rules. John McCain
got knocked out by the "Super Tuesday" winner-take-all vote in

Another problem is people cross-voting in the primary, trying to
knock out the other parties most important candidate.
