Sources: Boehner to tun for top House GOP spot again

NEW YORK (CNN) - Despite the prospect of heavy losses in the House, Minority Leader John Boehner is expected to run for his post again. That's according to several Republican congressional sources. Boehner is the top Republican leader in the House.

Meanwhile, as election returns come in, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she feels "excellent," adding that House Democrats will "increase our numbers." Pelosi said Democrats will break the historical pattern of a party losing seats after winning a wave election. The last time a majority party won seats after a wave election was in 1932.

    All republicans are scum. Hopefully what ever crime he committed is found out very soon. It's not a matter of IF he committed crimes, he's a republican, thus it's fact he has done ALOT of illegal things. We just need to find them and then prosecute him to the fullest extent!

    Republicans are white trash!

    A whity guy

    It was said on CNN earlier this evening, O'Bama has run a perfect campaign, his organization skills are fantastic. I believe that Palin's coments soon after McCain picked her for VP, stated sje didn't believe O'Bama to be qualified as he was only a "community organizer." Boy was she wrong!

    Well we know there will still be divisiveness in the House. Boehner has been and will continue to be very partisan. Hopefully he won't matter.

    Sorry John, I don't think that you can survive that. Your membership will challenge you unless you can do something fantastic. What will you promise them to stay in charge?
