Ryan has plenty of (justifiable) skeptics when it comes to shutting the door decisively on a huge work opportunity, but we can declare that he does have a point when he calls his reluctant acceptance of the Speaker of the House work "apples and oranges" compared to his hypothetical ascendancy to the presidency. For all the (somewhat muted) objections of some anti-establishment lawmakers in the House, Ryan needed number claim to a mandate from voters to emerge as a consensus boss in Congress. But when it comes to a very public, very well-covered and extremely contentious common election, Ryan knows that his chances of being embraced by the Republican electorate as a whole after more than a year of Donald Trump'south dominance of the race would be, uh, not high.
