kill the extra vertices in a polygon FC

I have a polygon FC with approximately 600,000 polygons. The problem is that polygons have extra unneeded vertices on straight line segments. In one case I counted 23 vertices where 4 would do. 19 * 600,000  =  11,400,000 extra vertices to draw; causing a lot of drag on the users of the data. What is the best way to remove the extra vertices on the straight line segments with out changing a single feature. Please keep in mind that I would like to avoid finding the smallest straight line segment (but I guess I could).

 

Thanks for any input,
