Voting algorithms should obey some stringent anti-politicking and
plain-common-sense restrictions.

See http://electionmethods.org/evaluation.htm for one list of such
criteria. Condorcet is the only voting method which satisfies (almost) all
of them.

(You can't satisfy _all_ criteria. In fact, you can mathematically prove
that this is impossible.)
