The good vibrations can’t last forever. Sooner or later,  President Obama is bound to run afoul of members of his own party. Glenn Thrush, in Politico, scopes out the suspects:

  • John Conyers: The irrepressible House Judiciary chairman wants to investigate the US attorneys scandal and other potential Bush-era malfeasance, despite Obama’s desire to “look forward.”
  • Dianne Feinstein: Senator has already made Obama apologize for not keeping her in the loop.

  • Joe Biden: You know the VP has some big gaffes left in him.
  • Daniel Inouye: Newly minted Senate Appropriations chair is a big fan of earmarks, and one aide says he “isn’t going to bend to accommodate” Obama.
  • Michelle Obama: After getting the Jackie O treatment, she has nowhere to go but down.
