I do think the man is smart enough to steer clear of anything that looks like an effort to side step the primary voters. The anger level of several thousand Cruz & Trump voters is not something a sane man would risk.
I know some have stated their preference for a Democrat over either Cruz or Trump, but the fallout of that decision may be politically prohibitive. Some of the GOP elite’s avoidance of the convention signals a fear of being tainted by any perception of high jinks. After all, his seat on the gang of 8, and it went nowhere, still hangs around Rubio’s neck & will for a long time.

If Paul Ryan said he will not accept a nomination for the presidency then take him at his word. After all if he is serious about not accepting let see if he is a man of his word and values. He just became Speaker of the House why not see how he does before putting him in another position. Let’s take him at his word.

Paul Ryan “count him out”. He is House Representation! I am not sure why and he knews Whats going on and lots of to dealing with RNC something fishy. What is his point? He is not making any sense., Pathalic.
“You know, we’d even had recounts in this election where the numbers for the president-elect had actually gone up. There’s no question about the legitimacy of this election, and for John Lewis to make those statements is deeply disappointing.” — Mike Pence
