The Sunday Outlook section of The Washington Post sums up who has a "Good Year" and a "Bad Year" in politics -- Gingrich good, Obama bad, for example. But "Best Year" went to "The Clintons." Political writer Chris Cillizza -- not a normal fountain of gush -- said it was "an amazing year for the Clintons. Again."
The Post is blinded by their star power. "When we gave Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton our 'good year' in 2010, we thought she was headed toward a little bit of a letdown in 2011," wrote Cillizza. "Boy, were we wrong. (Mental note: Stop counting out the Clintons.)" He also gushed over Bill and over Chelsea (thanks to NBC).
