Eager to switch from policy debates to a twitter-fueled fight about Bill & Hillary's personal life? [View all]

Then you are ready for the primary to be over.

Do you want to continue debating fair trade policy vs. free trade policy or are you ready to switch the debate to Paula Jones vs. Gennifer Flowers?

Do you want to continue discussing the merits of investing in domestic infrastructure vs. investing in foreign interventionist nation building or are you eager to discuss right-wing Whitewater talking points vs. right-wing Benghazi talking points instead?

Do you want to continue the debates about campaign finance, Wall Street and banking regulation, private prison reform, TPP, progressive taxation, fracking, minimum wage, and marijuana decriminalization or is it past time that we change over to Monica Lewinsky, Juanita Broaddrick, and Kathleen Willey?

Seriously - why are Hillary supporters whining about Sanders focusing on his policy differences with Hillary and why are they so eager to switch over to a Trump-style general election fight?
