    but I heard a guest on the Martin Basher show in the background talking about Boehner arranging a press conference at 5 pm EST possibly to step down from the speakership.

      ...if true it should be reported elsewhere in mere minutes.

        Its been about 20 minutes since I heard it. As I said, I haven't been paying attention so I don't know the context. May be it was a speculation. Anyway, as you said if it was a true to it, it would be out by now.

      and no word on any news conference. Maybe he forgot to alert the news folks and is talking to an empty room (for all the credibility he has at the moment, that isn't out of the question) but I suspect the rumor was just that...a rumor, started by someone with an ax to grind.
