Is This The Obama Sinking-Ship Moment

Immediately after the 2014 midterms I predicted that, at some point in his last two years in office, Democrats would desert President Obama to save their political skins as they contemplated life after Obama. The extraordinary Democratic Party discipline would break down.

Could the Iran deal be the straw that breaks the camel's back? I say that because of today's news that Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is breaking ranks and deciding to vote against the president's Iran deal.
"After deep study, careful thought and considerable soul-searching, I have decided I must oppose the agreement and will vote yes on a motion of disapproval," Schumer wrote in a 1,600-word post on the website Medium.
OK. It could be that the fix is in and that Obama doesn't need Schumer's -- or any other Jewish Democratic vote.

Or it could be that the dam is breaking and Democratic legislators are jumping ship.
