So who will the Teabaggers replace McConnel and Boehner with?

Eric Cantor is probably kicking himself for not hanging around, since that would have meant he would have been top candidate for Speaker. Yertle pissed all over the baggers favorite boy in the primary, so he has to go. Besides, both are "too liberal".

Who do you think will replace them? My money is on Cruz for the Senate.

1. I don't think it will be anyone but McConnell. For one thing, he doesn't want to run for President.

None of the aspirants will want to give another that much power.

7. OK, best argument so far

 

for keeping McConnell.

Certainly something to ponder. Of course they could give it to one of the newbies like Ernst in exchange for backing one of the factions.

2. The central event in the Senate for the next two years

will be a power struggle between McTurtle and Cruz. It will get ugly, and I will enjoy watching them eviscerate each other.

3. no one.

They were actually routed in this ordeal. The trouble with that is we will think that is a winning strategy and begin to marginalize our progressives on our way to 2016. This election actually bodes better for HC than EW in my opinion. We will not steer left, I fear.

6. Given the utter visceral hatred of the Clintons

 

by the Right and the press (and a hatred of HRC that may rival or exceed the racial hatred of Obama) I think HRC's odds just got very long indeed.

I have a very hard time believing McConnel and Boehner are going to keep their jobs, as they are loathed by the Bagger Boys.

4. There will be some fun watching the 'pubs implode

as they try to get cogent.

8. Cantor of course didn't voluntarily leave

So I'm not sure why he'd be kicking himself for not "hanging around."

And my bet is that Boehner and McConnell remain at the top of the leadership heap.
