“They all had johnsons”

In 2008 the Democrats did a brave thing (like many brave things, it was done because they had no choice): They wrote off the millions of American voters for whom Barack Obama is the wrong color to be president, and they won anyway.

In 2016 they made a similar gamble: In the eyes of a comparable number of voters Hillary Clinton lacks essential equipment for any responsible job, and just to be on the safe side, they voted for someone who not only has one but is one. Together with voter suppression and FBI & Russian meddling, that cost them the election. Bernie might have won enough more votes in the swing states, but the difference would have been less political than anatomical.
