Can another democrat run against the existing democratic president?

A Democrat could run for the Democratic nomination against an incumbent Democratic President. This happened in 1980 , for example, when Ted Kennedy ran against President Carter.

So a third party could nominate a Democrat to run for president if that Democrat lost the Democratic nomination to someone else.

Some became National Republicans, who were similar to the earlier Democratic-Republican Party, and some became Democrats, who shared more in common with the old Federalist party.
