4. The Democratic National Committee issues new rules eliminating "superdelegates" and requiring open primaries.

5. In her inaugural address, Hillary Clinton promises to "wrest back control of our democracy and economy from the moneyed interests that have taken over both."

6. President Hillary Clinton nominates Barack Obama to the Supreme Court, who immediately pledges to reverse "Citizens United." Senate Democrats make a rule change that allows Obama to be confirmed with 51 Senate votes. He is.

7. President Clinton nominates Bernie Sanders for Treasury Secretary and Michelle Obama for Attorney General. Both are immediately confirmed.

8. The chairman of the Republican Party officially repudiates Donald Trump, saying "shame on us for having nominated him." Mitch McConnell, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, and Mike Pence appear in a joint news conference in which they apologize for having ever supported Trump.

9. Disgraced and with his brand in tatters, the value of Trump's properties drops 80 percent. His creditors demand that his personal assets -- homes, planes, furniture, all he possesses -- be liquidated to pay his bills.

10. Rupert Murdoch fires Sean Hannity from Fox News.
