    The vote just hit 219 (Boehner) to 193 (Pelosi) and 15 (other).

    Tea Party takes a hit.

    Did anyone actually think it would turn out different?

    If so? I have some ocean front property in Arizona you may be interested in.

    Too bad Pelosi didn't win

    Maybe the House could actually accomplish something

    Put your butthurt aside, conservatives.

    Boehner didn't fight a battle he couldn't win last week.

    We are in a much improved position now, as evidenced by Obama running off the Hawaii and announcing he was going to refuse to negotiate from here on out.

    Not much else could be done. Cantor would have been a sideways move and they didn't have anyone else that could do it.

    Pelosi would have been interesting with a Republican majority..:D
