Boehner for president!?
We heard it. Today. On the House floor:
The scene: Rep. John Boehner, R-West Chester, enters from stage right. Wearing a gray suit and pink tie, the majority leader takes to the lectern and addresses the chair.
Mr. BOEHNER: Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to speak out of order for one moment.
The CHAIRMAN: The gentleman is recognized for one minute.
Mr. BOEHNER: I want to give all the members an idea of what the schedule for the day is. ... We expect to complete our week's work by 6:00 or 6:15 this evening ...
(Congressmen interrupt with unfettered bipartisan applause... A rare moment.)
UNIDENTIFIED CONGRESSMAN (possibly Rep. Chris Shays, R-Conn.): "Boehner for president!"
