Although both are great cities, I give Chicago the nod here. Reasons:
>It has a diverse private sector economy. When the economy recovers, it is in a much better positioned to expand. DC's economy, however, is primarily driven by government spending. Based on what we've seen lately, it appears the taxpayers don't have much appetite to increase funding any time soon and we are poised to see the cycle swing to de-funding very soon. I don't anticipate this changing for the foreseeable future.
>Chicago stands alone as the upper mid-west behemoth, so will entice anyone seeking to invest resources in that region. Washington is only one of many players in the Bos-Wash megalopolis, so has a lot of competition for attention in this region.

They have pretty much lived up to their potentials. I don't see either changing much.
