King of the Hill Power Rankings

In our seminar this morning we made a list of the Top Speakers of the House, detailed from our course reading in Cheney and Cheney's Kings of the Hill. Although this list does not include all Speakers of US History, these men were the ones we were asked to rank. Here is what we came up with, despite differing opinions and sentiments:

Kings of the Hill
1. Thomas Reed
2. Henry Clay
3. Joseph Cannon
4. Samuel Rayburn
5. James Polk
6. Nicholas Longworth
7. James Blaine
