Worst year in Washington

Worst year: Congress

The country wanted big things.
Congress gave them
little to nothing.

Bad year: Anthony Weiner

After those disastrous tweets,
we can say with certitude that
his political career is over.

Bad year: Barack Obama

He had some good moments,
but he's entering an election year
far weaker than expected.

Bad year: D.C. sports teams

Rooting for the home team
leaves Washington fans defeated
and disappointed -- again!

Good year: Newt Gingrich

His career has been defined by
a series of boom-bust cycles.
And he's booming — for now.

Best year: The Clintons

Hillary, Bill and Chelsea
have always been survivors.
In 2011, they prospered.
