    it allows more policy wonks rather than just media-friendly candidates, we could at least use some form of open list instead where voters get to choose the order even candidates on the list. There are many different ways that could work, but one of the problems with it and one reason I like mostly closed lists better is that American voters already have very low familiarity with particular politicians who aren't running for president and the whole idea of proportional representation should be to make elections about party platforms or ideas rather than personalities. That's one thing I despise about the house incumbency phenomenon.
