    IMO, it would be palatable if a moderate Republican (they do have the majority) was Speaker and there was an ironclad agreement to ignore the Hastert rule  (bills must have caucus votes to pass in order to be brought to the floor) in exchange for unified Democratic Caucus support.  

    This would definitely be a backroom deal but now is a good time to strike it.
