2. He doesn't have to be a member of the House to be elected Speaker.

So far they all have been incumbent US representatives, but it isn't a requirement in the Constitution.

7. It is such a powerful position that house members would fight him for it.....

It may not be mccarthy, but it wouldn't be trump either. If they win the house, it will be by a razor thin margin, and they will need all to vote in unison.

9. Or there's always scenario #2. Trump runs for Congress, wins, but Democrats keep the majority.

Nancy decides to keep the gavel and spends her remaining time in Congress being boss of "Depends guy."
