I think the reason that Pubs refuse to let the Clinton thing refuse to die is that it's THE ONE thing all Republicans can still unite behind, i.e., hatred of her. When her name is brought up, for an instant they stop tearing at each other's flesh, raise their fists in the air, and shout, "Yeah! Yeah! That bitch! Lock her up!"

Oddly, if Clinton had been elected, the Republicans would be a monolith again, the Great Wall, as it were. Hell, I'll bet Mitch McConnell has feverish and only slightly guilty fantasies about how his power would not have waned but would have gotten stronger during a Clinton presidency. Instead he got the toddler with the hammer who has no fear, no respect, and doesn't care what he tears down.
