Last week, the three of us announced the formation of a moderate Democratic working group in the U.S. Senate.

Even though the White House and Senate leadership praised the group’s formation, some commentators reacted by reporting signs of a rift and a power struggle within the Democratic Party. Others accused the 16 members of our group of trying to obstruct the president’s agenda.

We understand the Beltway impulse to emphasize conflict and the blogosphere’s concern that Democrats stick together. But as the group’s founders, we feel compelled to set the record straight.
