I actually may not mind that, but then we're right back to whether or not the party and its members should have control over who the candidate is. In a perfect world, your idea would be a fine solution, unfortunately, we live in a world where a vote-for-the-worst campaign would definitely be waged by the opposition. That already happened in 2008 in states with open primaries. Was it Rush Limbaugh who was getting his supporters to vote for Hillary instead of voting for a Republican candidate because he wanted to keep the Democratic side of the ticket in turmoil? It sucks that we're not always able to vote in the primary for the candidate we want to vote for in the general election, but I think the protections that the primary system provides are more important.
