If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Rep. Bill Owens, D-N.Y., says it’s “quite possible” he will vote for Republican John Boehner as speaker of the House, despite the fact that he backed Nancy Pelosi for minority leader, The Hill reports, citing the Adirondack Daily Enterprise.

Owens, Boehner, Pelosi, House, speakerOwens says he voted for Pelosi in a House Democratic caucus meeting last week, even though he thinks she is too liberal. "When I was asked to support her [Pelosi], I said I will if she agrees to govern from the center and makes jobs her priority," he says. "She assured me that she would, and I made it equally clear that if she didn't, I would not support her going forward."


His willingness to back Boehner “underscores the fact that a bloc of Democrats still resent Pelosi's decision to remain at the head of the House Democratic caucus despite their large losses in the mid-term elections,” The Hill reports.
