JIMMY CARTER AND THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS HATED EACH OTHER TOO:

Top Democrats at war - with each other (GLENN THRUSH & JOHN BRESNAHAN, 1/27/10, Politico)

The anger is most palpable in the House, where Pelosi and her allies believe Obama’s reluctance to stake his political capital on health care reform in mid-2009 contributed to the near collapse of negotiations now.

But sources say there are also signs of strain between Reid and White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, and relations between Democrats in the House and Democrats in the Senate are hovering between thinly veiled disdain and outright hostility.

In a display of contempt unfathomable in the feel-good days after Obama’s Inauguration, freshman Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) stood up at a meeting with Pelosi last week to declare: “Reid is done; he’s going to lose” in November, according to three people who were in the room.


Newsflash: so is Ms Titus.
