Our speaker of the house of representatives is in an interesting position.
He disappointed many last year as he accommodated the wishes of the incumbent president.
Then he chose not to fully support his party’s presidential candidate.
In January he will face a different situation with the republicans having control of both the house and the senate as well as the presidency. The republicans need to make things happen.
Predictions don’t cost us much so consider this one:
The new president is a corporate executive. He has experience handling subordinates and knows that powerful people do not often just fade away.
One solution is to keep him close. Appoint him to a cabinet position–not a premier one like defense or state, but instead to something that he should care about like education.
Tell him to clean up the department and then maybe he will get a promotion. If he fails he will hear “you’re fired”.
We deserve better
