    I can't help but wonder if there's those interested in the position or getting their man in the position because it's 3rd in the line of succession.

    Think about it. We don't often see this. What makes it odd is that with only the House, the speakership isn't really all that important,
    unless... Biden and Harris go bye-bye.

    Seriously? Under Pelosi basically all the spending has been rolled up in massive omnibus spending bills that no one has time to read. No one has more power over the purse than the Speaker.

    Not that important? You don't believe money is power, then?

    Trump stopped them cheating.

    A clear case of Liberty preserving authoritarianism.

    Careful. You might cause a lot of people to start thinking Trump will be nominated for House Speaker.

    And yet, no one even mentioned Trump until you did.

    or Cheney. I don't want either.

    I think McCarthy gets it eventually, but a floor fight and some dissent isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    McCarthy is pushing on the Bidens and Mayorkas, and has said Ukraine is getting too costly.

    I see no legitimate reason why he should be challenged like this. I smell a rat.
