Bernie Sanders' supporters, an easily entertained group if there ever was one, were sent into waves of ecstasy when a tiny bird recently alighted on his podium mid-speech, perhaps hoping to enjoy a refreshing bath in his impassioned flecks of flying spittle. Or maybe it was trained by someone not really clear on the whole idea of sending political "tweets."
In any event, it might as well have been the blue bird of happiness auguring a happy turn of events for Bernie: on Saturday, he kicked the former first lady's formidable rump in caucuses held in Hawaii (the warmest state), Alaska (the coldest state), and Washington (the most presidentially-named state).
Seriously, he won by absolutely crushing margins - not that Democrat superdelegates will much care. But a little bird told us that Hillary herself might not be too happy about it...
