BY SCOTT WONG Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) could be in prime position to run for president in 2020 if Donald Trump leads the GOP to a monumental collapse in November. With his youth and sunny, Reagan…
He took an unusual path to the Speaker’s office last fall after Ohio Republican John Boehner resigned under pressure from conservatives.
From the moment Boehner announced he was leaving, Ryan denied any interest in becoming Speaker — only to change his mind after the heir apparent to the gavel, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), abruptly dropped out of the race.
Given that reversal came after Ryan had adamantly denied any interest in the job — “I don’t want to be Speaker,” he said early on — some are hoping he can be persuaded to change his mind about running for the White House.
With the ugly GOP primary race heading toward a possible contested convention this summer, some of the Speaker’s biggest fans have begun rooting for Ryan to become this year’s GOP nominee — a consensus pick in the event the delegates in Cleveland can’t agree on anyone else.

No revolution, no matter how justified, and no movement, no matter how popular, has ever succeeded without a political philosophy to guide it, to set its direction and goal.
