6. Cantor is committing political suicide even if he wins the Speaker job

8. He probably has a keen sense of timing
And this bill is the best way to separate himself from Boner, just two days before a new Congress is about to be installed.
That's why I fear Cantor, he's a much shrewer card player than Boner could ever hope to be. The President will have his hands full for the next two years if Cantor becomes Speaker. Boner will look like the good old days in comparison.
