Cathy McMorris' Path to Speaker of the House

As I've watched with dread this debt ceiling debate, it occurs to me that neither John Boehner or Eric Cantor are really looking all that great right now. If Cantor thinks he can pivot off of the Tea Party into the speakership he's dreaming; similarly, I have my doubts that Boehner can tame the Tea tiger for very much longer when he's been aligned as closely with Obama as he has been these past few weeks.

If McMorris can hang on and not become a target, there's no reason to think that she couldn't rise to the top of the House Republicans in the next few years.
