As today's WaPost points out, Hillary Clinton's campaign has been filled with internecine squabbles. 

Interestingly, this situation may have been created on purpose.  As you'll see below, she may have paid too close attention to Abe Lincoln ...

One of Clinton's favorite books is "Team of Rivals," Doris Kearns Goodwin's account of Abraham Lincoln's Cabinet, and she assembled her own team of advisers knowing their mutual enmity in the belief that good ideas come from vigorous discussion. But while many campaigns are beset by backbiting and power struggles, dozens of interviews indicate that the internal problems endured by the Clinton team have been especially corrosive.
