    The voice vote is happening now. Cantor, Pelosi, Powell all got votes but most appear to be for Boehner.

    I can't imagine him losing. He's perfect for the radical teepotters because he backs down and lets them rule.

    The worst speaker in my memory and easily the worst congress.

    If that voting holds, it indicates a defeat (imho) to the radical right.

    He has many flaws (imho) but he's better than what the far right would come up with.
