Writer's Block: Change of Law

If you could change a law from any time in history, which would you change and what impact would this have?
I'd change the U.S. electoral laws. Switch the Senate to being elected by proportional vote (dropping the two Senators to a state thing), get house races more competitive (I don't particularly care which of many good options would be used) and the Presidency to Single Transferable Vote or something like it.

I think those changes would help revitalize our Congress and that other reforms I support would be popular enough to get through the resulting more democratic system. I'm a bit too much of a good governance type to implement my other policies by fiat.
