    It's not going to happen.

    And if it did, it would cripple the Republican Party for years.

    Yea. The Republicans force Boehner out while voting for the deal. What heroes. Whoever voted for the deal, needs to be voted out themselves.

    Because new leadership is always cripples groups rather than reinvigorates them.

    Voting against Boehner for Speaker isn't a vote for "new leadership", it's a vote for "no leadership".

    As was pointed out in the OP, a majority of Congressmen need to vote for the speaker. 16 Congressmen isn't a "majority".

    No one else will get the votes for it, except possibly Cantor - who's ideologically identical to Boehner.
