John Boehner barely keeps his position as House Speaker
Bone-head barely held on to his position as Speaker of the House. John Boehner kept his position by receiving 220 votes, but close behind him was Nancy Pelosi, who received 192 votes.
The funny thing about all of this is there was no challenger to his seat. Boehner could lost his position simply because folks were done with him over the fiscal cliff drama.
Other 'non-contenders' were former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Allen West.
