9. 2010 was sort of a mess

The Blago scandal over the IL Senate seat seemed to irrevocably taint the Democratic placeholder and subsequent Democratic Senate candidate. And it was a midterm election in a year where the "Tea Party" was, inexplicably, the most powerful force in politics and the Democratic vote was depressed or non-existent. Hopefully, we can do much better in 2016.
