Era of good feelings in the House

Speaker Madigan voted for Tom Cross for Speaker today. . . .after 117 other members voted for him for Speaker. Those little gestures are creating a feeling of goodwill in the House not seen in a long time. At least today, the future seems bright for good improvements from all Members getting a fair hearing in the House.

In the US House of Reps, Rep. Denny Hastert abstained in the vote for Speaker.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi voted for herself.

Actually, Madigan voted for Cross after Cross asked that Madigan be elected by acclamation, with the exception of one member.
