Why not stagger the Presidential election over a couple of days?

So that States would be able to vote one after the other. It would add drama to the Presidential election. Of course most people think that having different states vote on different days would make the process unfair, with states voting later having less of an influence over the contest than states that vote early, but that's part of the fun.

I mean, you know, that's what they say about the Primaries, that it gives drama to the process, that it means a fight that you can see. Who cares about Democracy when you have a good Spectacle that people can follow vicariously.
