4. Actually it might.

Remember Ryan was drafted into the position because his Republican colleagues could not agree on who to serve. There was even some talk that if the vote is split it might be possible for a Democrat to draw some GOP votes to become a speaker. It would still be a Republican Congress, but the speaker does have some leverage regarding whether bills can be considered by the remainder of the House. It's not a likely scenario, but stranger things can happen.
