In the wake of Tuesday’s vote democrats have made hay of a GOP civil war but all is not well on their side either.  Move-On and Democracy of America are putting up $3.5 million to fund primary challenges against any Democratic Senator who blocks an up or down vote on the public option.  

Liberal democrats have been at war with centrist democrats throughout the health care debate.  Remember this ad against Nebraska’s Ben Nelson:
