And you thought it was only the Republicans who ate their own.

The Democratic left, as we saw this week, is pretty upset with the president and his administration over the strategy regarding the Bush-era tax cuts and deals to be made with the GOP to extend unemployment benefits.

And this week's episode of the "It's All Politics" podcast was recorded before the mutiny in the House and before Bernie Sanders took to the floor to remind us, if nothing else, what a real filibuster looks like.

Plus: House Republicans name their new chairmen for the 112th Congress, Tim Bishop's re-election in NY 01 ends all outstanding House races, Tom Emmer concedes andMark Dayton will be Minnesota's next governor, Michael Steele gets yet another challenger. And we say goodbye to Elizabeth Edwards.

And you can hear it all here:
