5. they're already talking about Ryan

that would be perfect
every time he speaks and obstructs, doesn't allow a vote it will be his voice, his face on the TV
if he gives in to Democrats he will lose that way too the right will hang him
his hope for the Presidency would slip away day by day no matter what he does

6. No one want to be the Speaker

You are either going to be blamed for the fiscal cliff or attacked by the rabid Tea Party for compromising.

It is a no win situation.
