Hey Hillary

Yes, we recognize all your accomplishments. You broke down barriers, fought for reform, married well, etc. But it's over. No, really. We broke up at least 3 months ago, so why do you keep showing up and bumping into us at the grocery store and coffee shop and local park? The rest of the country has moved on - the democratic nomination has been decided, and you need to move on with your life. Maybe grow a beard like Al Gore did after he had his heart broken. Hell, that seemingly terrible time in his life inspired him to do some pretty good things in terms of global warming awareness. Why don't you do the same for health care reform?

We just need you to stop being the jealous, petty, psycho ex-girlfriend now. You know that Barack clinched it last night, but you simply had to be in the headlines. This might be the reason you're not especially well-liked in many circles now. It's time to learn that the world does not revolve around Hillary. When you asked your supporters "where do we go from here" last night, it's time to acknowledge that there's much you can do outside of official Democratic channels. Every day you drag this out is another day that you take away the real focus of this election season. We could focus on the critical issues at hand, or you can continue to let the media lap up this irrelevant posturing.
