Attention is focused on Janesville Congressman Paul Ryan, the GOP's 2012 vice presidential nominee. He's under pressure from party leaders to run for House speaker. That's a job he's repeatedly made clear he doesn't want.

Even if Ryan yields to his colleagues' pleas, conservatives are increasingly serving notice that the 45-year-old Ways and Means Committee chairman will have to audition for the job just like anyone else — despite the widespread support he has.

That suggests that the same hard-liners who pushed current Speaker John Boehner to announce his resignation and scared off his heir apparent, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, could throw up obstacles to Ryan, too.
