The speech Boehner gave on the House floor in 2007, on the first day of the new Democratic-controlled Congress, may be the best message to himself and his party now. "This is the people's Congress," he said. "Most people don't care which party controls it. What they want is a government that is limited, honest, accountable, and responsive to their needs. The moment a majority forgets this lesson, it begins writing itself a ticket to minority status."
