  •  Technically... (4+ / 0-)

    The Constitution specifies that the House elects a speaker to represent the voice of the House.

    However, the Constitution does NOT in any way shape or form specify that the Speaker must be an elected member of the House.

    From Section 2 of US Constitution:

    "The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment."

    What is this I hear of sorrow and weariness, Anger, discontent and drooping hopes... Life is too strong for you-- It takes life to love Life
