    Thanks. I was thinking of the vote as if it were inside the Republican caucus, not the whole Congress.

      Unless the caucus as a whole decided either to dump him outright or pick someone else who would be elected with less drama.

      I think there's a huge personal loyalty element here that a lot of people are overlooking. Boehner's been in the House for 22 years, and even the longstanding Repubs who don't like him know him personally very well. That's a very tough thing to overcome.
