Now that the Republicans have taken control back, does anyone know who the new Speaker of the House will be?

Have they given any hints? I haven't heard anything about it. Just wondering if anyone else has heard.

  • I've seen some articles that name Boehner, but I don't know if that's been officially announced yet or just speculation. Officially, they have to vote on it in the party, and they don't know who all will be there to vote yet.

  • Oh, ok, thanks notpanicking. I guess Boehner would make the most sense. I appreciate the info.

  • Can you imagine the lame jokes that will come out if Boehner is made Speaker?

  • No...his name is pronounced like this: BAY-ner. Not BONER. Good grief.
