Calling all wonks: The year's biggest political stories

If the year's coming to a close, it must be time for every media outlet on the planet to roll out its top 10 lists of the biggest -- whatever -- of 2011. On the editorial board, we talked about doing a top 10 list of top 10 lists, but that too seemed unoriginal. So why fight it? Right now we're working on a list of the 10 biggest (most interesting or significant) political happenings of the year, to be published on an upcoming editorial page.

So what would you put on such a list? The Arab Spring? The questions raised by analysts about California's controversial bullet train project? Rick Perry forgetting what third government agency he'd eliminate? It's all fair game. Post your suggestions below.
