A Big Idea

Western European style proportional representation often gets tossed around when Washington starts to look particularly gridlocked. Has it ever been seriously considered at the state level?

After voting for another failing school levy yesterday, which was needed because Ohio's educational system is broke and no one wants to fix it, I'm gonna try and start a debate about this in Ohio, at my blog, Democracy Guy. It's easier to change a state constitution (gay marriage, anyone?), and such a major change may work better at the state level. Might be worth approaching in other states, too.
