Mr. Speaker Boehner

John Boehner is the Speaker of the U.S. House:

The House is now debating rules that would require some of the highest level of transparency ever known, including making bills available online as soon as they are filed. In a show of the decline of now-Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's political capital, 19 Democrats did not vote for her for Speaker, but voted for another member-11 of those votes went to Western North Carolina Congressman-and former Tennessee quarterback-Heath Shuler, one of Pelosi's most vocal opponents inside her own party. Middle Tennessee's Jim Cooper (D-Nashville) was among the Democrats who received an anti-Pelosi protest vote.
