This is not unrelated, in my opinion. Ryan’s not the youngest Speaker ever, but it’s been a while since we’ve tapped somebody that young – and, may I say? It’s odd to think of myself as ‘young’ these days, but it’s true: I’m the same age as Paul Ryan and only a year older than Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. I guess my generation is starting to get its hands on some of the reins of power.
And not a moment too soon, in my own personal opinion.
PS: Told you it was going to happen. Because I cherish these moments when I made the right call ahead of time.
