50% run by Obama and 50% run by Romney, let them manage that for 5 years then switch sides for another 5 years - same 2 people. Cut the Fed gov in half as well. Keep doing this and then pour syrup on it.
Romney didn't get 50% of the vote.
When persons run for head of democratic or republican parties let that be by popular vote, good for 10 years...then flip a coin what half of the federal gov each will run then rotate.
It is not fair to the country or either party over the course of history to get 50% of the popular vote then fail to have the opportunity to manage part of the country.
