If it comes to it, totally, but I don't think it will come to it. This story isn't really new. The hard-righters were yelling the same thing a couple of years back and all the pundits were speculating that Cantor would get the job. Bad blood between the right of the party and Boehner has existed since the Republicans got the majority in 2010. As far as he's concerned, I would imagine, it's more of the same. Why would he step down and thus accept a humiliating end to his political career?
