A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

Should the US try to move to a multi-party electoral system?

We decided last week to discuss the possibility of a multi-party electoral system in the US. I’ve looked at a number of articles describing the pros and cons of such a system, but haven’t found any single article that’s particularly good. However, here’s an article that summarizes pretty well the points made in the other articles I’ve looked at. Also, here’s a recent opinion piece by Jamelle Bouie (Scott’s favorite New York Times columnist) that raises interesting questions about what might be required to allow viable third parties to arise here.
