I agree with this.
The small group of mostly back-bench Republicans plotting to unseat House Speaker Glenn Richardson recognize the perils of their quest, but say the time is ripe for change. Rep. David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, is leading the charge, with the public backing so far of just a handful of rank-and-file colleagues.
Leadership challenges rarely succeed because, like all conspiracies, they require uniform cooperation. Yet anyone participating in such a coup is inherently independent.
