It is careful to examine what we're trying to attain here. The person who runs the best campaign or the person more suited to run the country?

By simpler I mean the simplest way to choose the best person for the job. It gets more complicated when one person has more money than an entire town and spends that money to sway millions. Whose interests are best at heart here, the country or that guy?
I don't think your approach is a good way to select the best person for the job. Since we aren't likely to be able to agree on that, why not err on the side of free speech?
