I’m not sure this is actually a good idea. Accountability is one thing, but any one person out of 435, Democrat or Republican, can bring House business to a screeching halt to have another vote for Speaker for whatever reason they choose. That’s too much power for any one person.

Nope. Voting present. Tune in Monday for week 2 of the clown show. Same Bat time, same Bat channel.

If enough vote "Present", it's a done deal.

It was designed for grandstanding and pompous behavior?

If that's all you see occurring here, you need to pay better attention.

It was designed for debate, and they are debating.

Do I like some of it? Nope.

But is it better than a rubber stamp?

Yup.

Right-O. Quite certain that it's ME who is the problem here.

Embarrassing.

Guess they decided to give it one more go instead of adjourning.

So, let’s say McCarthy finally win. From what I’ve read the rules package, that includes requiring only one person to trigger a speaker redo, gets voted on after a speaker is chosen. What happens if the rules package doesn’t pass? Current rules stay in effect?

With his hands tied somewhat tightly, and that's a good thing despite how "embarrassing" it might seem to some members.

I'm confused. I hear about concessions RINO McCarthy made but nothing about them reduced to writing as allegedly promised. What's the truth?
