    It is entirely possible for the House to vote for a minority party member as Speaker. Heck, according to the Constitution the Speaker doesn't even have to be an elected member of Congress.

    What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.
