Speaker McCarthy

It took 15 ballots but Kevin McCarthy is now Speaker of the House.  For all the ridicule and hand-wringing of the past week, this is actually the way that the House is supposed to work.  No one is supposed to be guaranteed a victory and the Speaker is not meant to be a benign dictator whose every whim is law.

If all of this drama leads us away from the concept of the Imperial Speakership, it’ll be worth it.
