All candidates should be randomly elected, just like a jury duty notice. Can't be any more incompetent than the current bunch and guaranteed to not get the same corruption. A true random selection would give us a fairly representative slice of the national population, too. Inmates should be able to take office too, but if they're in for anything really dangerous they'll have to get an office inside the prison.

Not a bad idea until the inmate thing.

I'd like to believe you'd be surprised between the morals of a "rich person" and a "poor person."

I kind of want to see how a society like this would turn actually out, observe the hilarity and whatnot, but that would be too cruel an experiment.
