"But constricting the system to 13 states is NOT the answer. At least now there the two parties have to deal with 50 states. With about 50 different Senators who, like Joe Lieberman most recently, can OCCASIONALLY tell thier parties to go to hell because they will get elected in their state anyway. With fewer states, the stakes are just that much higher for parties to put people in power who will tow the party line. Fewer states mean fewer ideas and less diversity in ideas."

There was a time when we had 13 states.

There would be much more competition for each seat, which means more, and hopefully better, choices to choose from. I mean really, the ONLY reason Mary Landrieu was re-elected in Louisiana was because the Republicans didn't have anybody to run. The guy they backed was a democrat less than a year ago. Still it was a close race even though it was 2 democrats going against each other. Louisiana is a red state without any republicans to run for office.
