    That would be worse than having more than one wife.

    Silly idea. Who would break a tie? I would be open to cabinet rule though. They can rotate the presidency among them based on height--shortest one first.

    If we're going to make such a drastic change, I'd be in much more in favor of adopting a parliamentary system.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Yet somehow the Roman Republic survived for five hundred years under said system.

    Having a Senate composed of former executive officers as the supreme authority worked wonders. A person like Pelosi likely wouldn't have gotten into the Roman Senate, as they would have had a very difficult time securing election to the executive.

    Moreover, as the source of power, the legislative power doesn't need to be reigned in.

    Congressmen only serve 2 year terms. Senators only serve 6 year terms. They serve 30 years because the people like them. Do you want to take away the right for idiots to vote?

    Most state legislators, however, tend to turn over a whole lot faster and since they are the ones who would vote for Senators it would make the senate a WHOLE lot more accountable to the people.

    It sounds like...using your logic...he wants to reduce the extent to whith for "idiots to vote".

    More specifically, he wants to allow them to vote for their representatives in the House of Representatives, while States Legislators would vote for Senators.

    So they would not be having their "right to vote" taken away, it would simply be returned to the original extent that said vote directly affected.

    We have only one president now, and we have one president since the beginning! We also saw(and see) a circus with few presidents(I hope everyone understands which). Look at our today's situation and try to imagine, what will happen with two presidents!

    Two POTUS's?

    This is what happens when a writer waits WAY too long to write an article and his editor needs it by the end of the day.

    Two still isn't enough to handle ALL of the bull**** that gets thrown in front of the POTUS at any given moment. Preferably a larger conglomeration of people than one or two would suffice in managing the maneuverability of this nation, all 316,000,000+ of us.
