The Gang of Six

Editors' Picks

Idaho's senior Sen. Mike Crapo was part of a highly touted bipartisan group, dubbed the Gang of Six, charged with crafting long-term solutions to the nation's debt crisis. But the six became five when one dropped out. After some coaxing, he returned to great fanfare. But ultimately, all of the six were shut out of the House-Senate deficit-reduction "super committee." The Washington Post then handed the Gang of Six its Worst Week in Washington Award on Aug. 12. And that's saying something since it seems good weeks in Washington, D.C., are hard to come by.
