Ryan's New Path to Power

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tells friends that his "most obvious route to power -- a run for the White House in 2016 -- holds less appeal to him with each passing day," Politico reports.

"Instead, Ryan seems increasingly intrigued with the prospect of amassing more power within Congress, using his juice in the House leadership to promote his trademark Medicare plan and engineer spending cuts. The friends say this path could ultimately lead him to an eventual run for House GOP leader, or even speaker, an option they surmise he has warmed to since the election."

"At the same time, Ryan continues to cultivate a national political and financial network that would serve him in any role."
