    Wait, wait, did that mean Bernie had to officially switch his party from independent to Democrat and then back again to run for POTUS???
    Until you accept everyone on here knows as much, if not more than you, when it comes to these types of conversations, your condescension gets in the way of your posts.
    That was the beginning of the end for Sicatoka. He used to be a pretty cool poster and then he started to act exactly as you describe and a few years later most people blocked him.

    I think in the last Senate, of the 50 Senators you guys counted as "D's," there were actually only something like 47 or 48. The others were "Independents." But, they were persuaded to vote with D's on enough issues to give the D's majority control in the Senate.

    I would be shocked if somewhere behind the scenes the Democratic leadership in the House isn't at least thinking about or talking about or exploring the possibility of how they can get to 218. They aren't publicly acknowledging it because there is too much political value in letting the Republicans in the House engage in their spat, but they are thinking about it.

    This might be your future, right here. It's entirely possible the Republican party, as represented in the House, fractures into two separate groups. Then what?

    Then you are right back to what I was talking about earlier. Who can come up with a way to get to 218. Yep, it's as fragile as your coalition, but it's better than having no coalition at all.

    It is looking like it will be:
    McCarthy - 216
    Jeffries - 212
    Present - 6

    So, that would mean there are technically 428 votes; thus, 215 needed for the win. 216 does it for McCarthy. FWIW, Pelosi won her last Speakership for the 117th Congress with 216 votes (of course, in an organized fashion on the first vote).
    It helps when threats to reupholster the chairs in the speaker's office with someone's taint are taken seriously.

    "Assuming McCarthy just flipped Gaetz by giving him chairmanship of Armed Services Committee since the current committee chairman had tried to attack Gaetz."

    "Looks like Gaetz and McCarthy just reached a deal to stay and vote.

    On CSPAN looked like McCarthy said â??thank youâ?? and Gaetz appeared to mouth the word â??committee.â??

    (He currents sits on Armed Services. The chairman of that committee, Mike Rogers, just lunged at him.)"
    But enlisted women are 18 and thus too old for him.

    No. Present (in multiples of 2) reduces the number of votes needed. Presuming Gaetz also votes Present, that will mean that 216 votes (what McCarthy got last time) will be sufficient.

    For the second January 6th in the last 3 years, the GOP has failed to replace Nancy Pelosi as Speaker.

    Correct. Technically, anyone can switch.
