    President Barack Obama may be looking for the new Republican-controlled Congress to grant him authority to fast-track negotiations over a pair of international trade deals, but critical Democrats are fighting back against the measure.

    The liberal news media has gleefully been reporting the GOP's political quarrels for many years. But that exaggerated story line all but vanished last week in the aftermath of the Democrats' humiliating defeat in the midterm elections.
    Democratic leaders and their rank and file were deeply divided over the budget that was worked out in a deal with House Republicans. Not only among themselves but with President Obama, too, whom they bitterly blamed for their deep losses in Congress.
    Democratic Party discipline has been eroding fast as a result of Obama's growing unpopularity, but last week the
    Democrats were deserting Obama in droves. And word ran like wildfire through their ranks that from now on it's every Democrat for themselves.

    Their party's widening split wasn't contained to Capitol Hill, either. It quickly spread to the presidential nominating battle, too, where liberals were repudiating Hillary Clinton and throwing their support to ultra-left wing Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. More on this in a moment.
