      It is, to say the least, exceedingly unlikely that any current Republicans would vote to restore Nancy Pelosi to the speaker’s chair. At the same time, however, it is easy to imagine a situation where Boehner is removed and his caucus divides among several GOP candidates. In that situation, Pelosi could have the power to play kingmaker — and to potentially exact concessions in return for her caucus’ support.
      Probably could also occur if Boehner resigns.

      I think that sometime after being reelected to Speaker, Boehner quits. He doesn't have it in him. He won't want to be around November 2014 when the GOP caucus collapses.
