A Slight Constitutional Amendment

Senator Feingold has introduced a constitutional amendment to change the process of replacing Senators from an appointment by the Governor of the State to a special election process. This is a good idea, as evidenced by the current debacles in New York, and Illinois. Constitutional amendments require supermajorities, and I have no idea whether or not this idea is politically feasible, but it is a worthwhile idea.

UPDATE: Nate Silver has much, much more.
