All Buzz, No Fly?
The idea that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan can swoop in and get the 2016 GOP nomination for president sounds great, except for all the details. Like, when he was being talked about for Speaker, activists were calling him "too establishment"--so how would that change in a big year for insurgents at a brokered convention against Trump? You know, the guy who suggested there could be "riots" if he did not win the nomination. Ryan has reportedly emphatically said no.
Which I guess is being treated like a firm "maybe".
But really--I was shocked when he became Romney's running mate. His House gig is a good gig, and a VP run didn't seem like a step up. I don't know how much good a failed Presidential run does him. (I do not see success, here.) Also--
Who in the heck would replace him as Speaker!? (I know, I want Nancy Pelosi. I want lots of things...)
