Paul Ryan it's MY WAY or NO WAY for me to run for Speaker

Over and over again, Paul Ryan has said that he doesn’t want to be Speaker of the House.
I made a few requests for what I think is necessary, and I asked to hear back by the end of the week.
"First, we need to move from being an opposition party to a proposition party. Because we think the nation is on the wrong path, we have a duty to show the right one. Our next speaker needs to be a visionary one.

"Second, we need to update our House rules so that everyone can be a more effective representative. This is, after all, the people's house. But we need to do it as a team. And it needs to include fixes that ensure we don’t experience constant leadership challenges and crisis.

"Third, we, as a conference, should unify now, and not after a divisive speaker election.

"The last one is personal. I cannot and will not give up my family time. I may not be able to be on the road as much as previous speakers, but I pledged to make up for it with more time communicating our message.

"What I told the members is, if you can agree to these requests, and I can truly be a unifying figure, then I will gladly serve. And, if I am not unifying, that is fine as well. I will be happy to stay where am, at the Ways and Means Committee.

"Let me close by saying: I consider whether to do this with reluctance. And I mean that in the most personal of ways.
