Feinstein unhappy re: Panetta choice, Feinstein taking up for Burris seating, Reid thumping his chest... Richardson gone... the Left upset with Obama choices... and we're just getting started.
One good thing for Obama about all this mess? No one is talking about the Blagojevich / Obama admin connections. Reid's alleged comments have kinda helped in that area, too.

Democrats must be “very, very careful” to avoid overreaching and will not rubber-stamp President-elect Obama’s policies, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday.
In an interview with The Hill, Reid said it is essential for Obama and congressional Democrats to work closely with Republicans in the new Congress. He added that 2009 is very different from 1993, the last time Democrats controlled both Congress and the White House.
