12. That's probably more of the tack I would have taken

I would love to have a system similar to Canada, UK, etc. but it will take a long hard slog to get there, not to mention a significantly "bluer" Congress to actually get it done- though it's worth mentioning that legislators tried- and failed- to get SP off the ground in Sanders' significantly more progressive home state of Vermont, so it's probably going to be difficult in any event making such a large scale transition all at once. As I understand it, even places like Canada didn't go SP overnight.
