Our friends Peter Baker and Anne Kornblut at the Washington Post take a backstage look at the Clinton campaign and find it, even in victory, something of a mess.

Read it HERE.

Some highlights:

An anonymous senior aide: "The greatest challenge going into the campaign was the management of Bill Clinton."

Political director Guy Cecil to Mark Penn and Mandy Grunwald: "You guys need to grow up. You’re acting like kids. I’ve got work to do."

Deputy communications director Phil Singer to the "war room": "[Expletive] all of you."

Harold Ickes to Penn: "[Expletive] you!"

Penn to Ickes "[Expletive] you!" 

Ickes to Penn "[Expletive] you!"
