NONE. All political campaigns should be grassroots with money ONLY from the people
Don't want any flakes who hold a job for less than two years deciding he wants to move to the White House, do we?
What we have are illiterates and non-literates and over grown children with access to the ballot box. Frankly, all the in the world that don't address this won't fix the problem.
Corporations exist because the state recognizes them and regulates their behavior. It is completely reasonable that corporate political expenditures can be (and will be) regulated just as commercial speech is regulated today.
“Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001

How to reform elections.
1) Campaign Tax of $3-$5 to fund ALL state and federal elections.
2) enforce the publics right to the airwaves and make campaign ads a PSA with each candidate getting X# of 30 second spots at specific times of day; to run concurrently with each other.
3) Institute Instant Run-off Voting
4) remove all other funding activities, i.e. no fund raisers.
This way the public is in control of our elections and all candidates are given equal treatment.
1) As a consequence of their FCC licenses, all radio and television stations are required to run a certain number of commercials at various times of the day for *ALL* candidates in a particular race. These times are pre-defined so that all candidates will get primetime and off-primetime commercials. Absolutely no negative campaigning is allowed under any circumstances.
2) We add "none of the above" to the ballot. If "none of the above" wins, a second election will be held 6 weeks later and none of the people on the previous ballot will be considered. Obviously, people didn't want any of them, why run them again?
3) You can fundraise all you want, but you cannot fundraise for a particular candidate or party. All fundraising revenue is given to the general fund.
There's probably more to add.
