    Election of Speaker of the House

    The Speaker doesn't even have to be a member of the House...that's kind of crazy.

    But, let's say the Dems split with 100+ voting for Pelosi and 100+ for someone else, but the Repubs block vote their 200 or so votes for one person, does that person win? Is it a simple plurality?

    Re: Election of Speaker of the House

    Looked it up...need 218 votes, unless a House member just votes present, which lowers that needed number to 217, 216, etc...for any such votes.

    I doubt some of the anti-Pelosi Dems can be convinced to vote for the Repub, eh? Nah, that'll never happen.

    Hey Buddy, the answer as I see it is that the Democraps select their person in conference and then that person is voted on by the full House.
