Circular Firing Squad

From dKosopedia

Circular Firing Squad 
Term for destructive, intra-party attacks, particularly those that take place during a primary race. Partisan voters generally try to avoid circular firing squads for fear that the candidate who emerges victorious will be weakened by them in a general election. In 2004's Democratic presidential primary, a strong ABB feeling prevented the circular firing squad phenomenon from doing much damage to any candidate, including eventual nominee Sen. John Kerry.
