    Exclamation Breaking: Paul Ryan made a HUGE decision over the weekend!

    And he said that an announcement wouldn't come this week?

    Go figure

    Ryan is sweating the Freedom Caucus.

    The implication is that he will not step into the ring until he has a promise in hand to basically have things done his way.

    He is refusing to become another Boehner; while he may agree to a few minor rules changes, he will not be speaker unless he is allowed to run things the way that he believes they should be run.

    So far, the Freedom Caucus will not accept that, so Ryan is out.

    I don't understand why. Ryan is holding the keys here. He has the job that is more personally satisfactory to him than any other could be, save the presidency. He could take a nominally more powerful position, but he knows that the Freedom Caucus will just fuck him over like they did Boehner. Yet he is the only viable candidate across a deep divide of strategic thought. So it will depend on the FC's resolve.
