  •  She WILL be a candidate for speaker (2+ / 0-)

    and she will lose.

    The way the process works is that each part meets to choose their leader.  When the house convenes in full people (almost always) vote for the leader chosen by their party.

    So if you're looking for a headline out of these developments it might be that Cantor will step up to run within the GOP caucus.  It seems like he would have a good chance of winning.  And the rest of the party would vote for him (over Pelosi) when the official vote is taken by the full house.
