The Weakest Speaker in History?

House Speaker John Boehner, "who by title and position should be the second most powerful person in Washington, sure doesn't seem or sound like it," Politico reports.

"He has little ability to work his will with fellow House Republicans. He has quit for good his solo efforts to craft a grand bargain on taxes and spending. And he hasn't bothered to initiate a substantive conversation with President Barack Obama in this calendar year."
