We should change the way that we do primaries. Have the state that voted with the largest percentage of republican votes be the first state in the primaries - not Iowa and New Hampshire. Let the democrats have the same schedule. Instead of getting the conservative candidates picked through by Iowa and New Hampshire - and whoever else wants to rush to the head of the line, let the states earn their right to be first in the primaries by being the reddest or bluest states, respectively, for the republicans or democrats. Then let the "moderates" pick from the candidates that the strong republican or democrat states have left standing, not the wishy-washy moderates that "moderate" states think would be okay for the rest of the country.
