Why does the House need a Speaker?
In this week’s episode of Politics In Question, Lee and James reflect on the House’s Speaker drama. Why did it take so long for the House to select a Speaker? What is the House for? Why does it need a Speaker – and other powerful leaders – to operate? And what can the House’s history teach us about alternative ways to manage the institution? These are some of the questions that Lee and James ask in this week’s episode.
