House Speaker John Boehner on his job

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, had a bad year. Democrats chided him for getting little done but holding 40 meaningless votes to repeal Obamacare. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., called Boehner, "A coward! He's a coward!" Tea partyers threatened to dump Boehner as speaker. The three moderate Republicans left just shook their heads. "I'm what you'd call a regular guy with a big job," Boehner said. Later he said disconsolately, "I need this job like I need a hole in the head." Win McNamee / Getty Images
