Barack Obama Vs. Robert Griffin III

These days, the “face” of Washington DC is a young upstart with sky- high expectations. But are we talking about Barack Obama or Robert Griffin III? Hell, even we don’t know. Things didn’t wrap up until 2 AM on Tuesday. We’re tired. Give us a break.

Winner A little less now than in week one, but…sure.
Remarkable Quote About Work
Winner “By itself, the recognition that we have common hopes and dreams won’t end all the gridlock or solve all our problems or substitute for the painstaking work of building consensus and making the difficult compromises needed to move this country forward.” – Acceptance Speech, November 7, 2012
Winner “This moment right here, it's unbelievably believable. It's unbelievable because in the moment, we're all amazed when great things happen. It's believable because great things only happen with hard work.” – Heisman Trophy Acceptance Speech
January Plans
Probably getting yelled at by someone. Also, preparing for his 2nd term.
Winner Could be in the playoffs. But most likely preparing for his 2nd term.
Friends With Jay-Z & Bruce Springsteen?

Nah.
Will Win Super Bowl In 4 Years?
HA!
