After a bitter and sometimes acrimonious primary, supporters of both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton can hopefully agree on at least one thing: these are the best yard signs of the 2016 presidential primary.

The Tweet above comes from Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick, who has supported Clinton but — as I reported during the New York primary — lives in a town that’s heavily pro-Sanders.
The yard signs reference the rivalry between Founding Fathers Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr — the central drama of the new hit musical Hamilton.
Of course, that long-simmering fight famously ended in a deadly duel after Hamilton refused to support Burr in his general election battle against Thomas Jefferson. It doesn’t seem likely the Clinton-Sanders divide will prove as difficult to heal.
