For almost four months, House Democrats have enjoyed something that once seemed unattainable: relative calm inside their caucus.

Democrats have tamped down the internal friction that dominated the spring and summer, creating divisions along ideological and generational lines, as they instead focus on the far more consequential battle of trying to impeach President Trump.

1. I really don't believe there is in-fighting

I could be wrong. But I don’t.
There is so much going on to be in-fighting.

There may be supporters overly reactive.

2. People who hate the Democratic party

claim all sorts of things about the party falling apart.

Meanwhile, they push spoiler candidates.
