There has got to be a better way than lining up candidates in front of a firing squad of millions of people that are just now tuning in, probably having never heard the names, and hosting a game of Jeopardy. "I'll take, 'This is Lame' for $400, Alex."
-oh, I know. Make it indeed like a game of jeopardy. Test them on their understanding of U.s. history (not revisionist) and law, then we'll really see who the winners are....hint: not very many.
