Why does it have to be Democrat vs. Republican or Party A vs Party B? Why can't it be Republican vs. Republican or Party A vs Party A? Why is a presidential election, being forced between multiple parties? What if the second party really doesn't have a better qualified candidate, but wins through manipulation? That's a serous consequence for a country! And what if the first party has two or three better qualified candidates over the entire second party? Wouldn't it be more beneficial for a countries welfare, to have the two top contenders of ALL candidates combined, to chose from, when electing their President? A forced two party Presidential contention is indeed a handicap that needs to be fixed!
