Democratic Infighting Escalates

The New York Times reports Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) "considers the White House chief of staff, William M. Daley, to be ham-handed. Democratic leaders complain that Team Obama's zeal for secrets creates more problems than it solves."

The president's advisers think Reid "has overreacted to perceived slights."

Meanwhile, some Obama advisers "look back at the springtime standoff over government spending as a missed opportunity to confront Republicans, risking a government shutdown then that might have averted debt-ceiling paralysis later."
