My Grandmother (may she rest in peace), had told me years ago that the Jewish people do not need enemies, they have each other. She was refereeing to the many opposing factions of the Jewish community disagreeing on almost every Jewish related issue from the occupied territories to which brand of matzoh ball soup is the best.
Well, the same can be said for the Democratic party. My Mother describes the Democratic primary process as a circular firing squad. (I come from a family of deep thinkers:-) The candidates form a circle and shoot each other. They run negative campaigns designed to tear their opponents down instead of build themselves up. This of course leaves the winner (?), pretty shot up and badly exposed. I do not think this is the best way to prepare a person for the big show, so to speak.
