Will Cantor be able to get majority House support to be speaker?

I'm wondering how many of last night's "yes" votes Lil' Eric will be able to win over....what do others here think?

And what happens if Cantor CAN'T get an overall House majority?

2. No, and he knows it. This is why Boehner will be speaker.

I expect Boehner to lose the first vote and Cantor to appear as his savior for a second vote.

Also, when do these votes take place? Does it all go down tomorrow?

3. He's a weasel. He doesn't command the respect required to be taken seriously. I say no.

6. Boehner has failed his employer. My bet is he will be gone...

Cantor or Ryan would be good candidates except they do not fit the 'kinder and gentler' image the republicans wish to project if they wish to win the next election.
Expect them to find them a lap dog (lap wolf?) in sheep's clothing.

7. Do they HAVE any nice people left in that caucus?

Even any nice reactionaries?
