It's an embarrassment of riches this week for nominees for the Worst Week in Washington prize. Join The Fix blogger Chris Cillizza for a live video chat in which he revealed his pick.
Gen. David Petraeus is our "Worst Week in Washington" winner.
Why? Petraeus went from polishing his hero status at CENTCOM in Tampa, Florida to leading a decidedly unpredictable war effort in Kabul, Afghanistan.
In so doing, he put his sterling reputation on the line and effectively eliminated himself from any possibility of running for president in 2012.
Who were this week's runners up?
Does he have one?
Petraeus had a worse week than McChrystal??
