WASHINGTON -- Could America imagine a ''Greater Washington'' -- launched, perhaps, even by Inaugural Day this ,, coming January?Right now, says Bruce Adams, a former president of the suburban Montgomery County Council, the nation's capital city and region are ''failing miserably.''And it's not just the sea of red ink washing over the discredited District government, Mr. Adams told a Smithsonian conference in early October. The capital city and its Virginia and Maryland suburbs are all in trouble and failing to tap their immense resources.

The Greater Baltimore region approves of the way President Bush is doing his job, favors legalizing slot machines in Maryland and would vote for Mayor Martin O'Malley for governor in a 2006 Democratic primary. Greater Washington? It gives a thumbs-down on Bush, is equally split on slots and would back Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan over O'Malley to lead the state. As Baltimore-area lawmakers increasingly look to bolster their influence in Annapolis by aligning with their Washington-area counterparts, distinctions in voter opinion could play an important role.

William C. Harris, chairman of Crestar's greater Washington and Maryland banking region, is soft-spoken and engaging and with few rough edges.But that can be deceiving. Harris knows what results he wants and isn't afraid to proclaim them."We need to be at least 10 percent share of the market," he said. "It is my plan to get there in three years."That's a tall order in this tough market, where Crestar has a 4.5 percent market share. But Harris has proved he can win business. Under his leadership, Crestar Bank vaulted to second place in market share in Northern Virginia from seventh place, and to third place from 12th in greater Washington.

BETHESDA -- Few golf courses have played so integral a part in a player's career as Bethesda Country Club has for Beth Daniel. For one week in each of the previous two years, it has become Beth's Country Club.It was here, at the 1989 Greater Washington Open, that Daniel ended a four-year non-winning streak. It was also here, at last year's LPGA Championship, that Daniel won her first major title since turning pro in 1979."I don't know if I particularly fit the course, or if it fits me, but it's obviously been very much to my liking," Daniel, 34, said yesterday.

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield should be spending between $50 million and $100 million a year on community services in the nation's capital - compared with a projected $1 million this year - to meet its obligations as a nonprofit insurer, a Washington-based advocacy group contends in a report to be released today. CareFirst "has an obligation to serve the community - a charitable obligation - and we don't think it's meeting its charitable obligation," said Walter A. Smith, executive director of the DC Appleseed Center For Law and Justice, a decade-old public-interest organization that has been pushing for CareFirst reforms, and which commissioned the report.

NOW begins the final year of independent Baltimore.Of Baltimore, that is, as a stand-alone, federal government-designated metropolitan area. Midway in 1992, the Office of Management and Budget will be announcing changes, pursuant to the 1990 census, in the shape and ranking of some of the nation's 300 or so metropolises.Baltimore, in all likelihood, will be folded into the metro area next door, becoming a component in the Washington-Baltimore Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area (CMSA)
