9. I haven't seen "it's her turn" or "she deserves it" or the like bandied about much lately.

It's just as well it wore out pretty quickly, since I think it's been realized that such a meme doesn't sit well with voters.

Now the country has moved into the "dueling polls" phase, where every few hours they get to see a new poll from Joe's Polling Company and Bait Shop, Inc. showing that Bernie is now only 6 points behind Hillary ("with a bullet," as they say on the Billboard "Top 100" lists), and the Hillary side gets to say "That's wonderful. But he's STILL behind, isn't he?"

Once the polls get within the Magical Margin of Error, the country will finally get a chance to move to discussing the important issues -- like "Why does Bernie talk like he comes from Brooklyn?", "Ohmygerd, did you SEE the color of that pantsuit Hillary was wearing?", and "Why didn't Vermin Supreme's campaign ever get any traction?"

Then, before we know it, Election Day will be here and everyone who bothers to show up will get to scratch their head and wonder "How on earth did these two ever get on a ballot for President?"

And the best part is, in four years we get to do it all over again!
