Are the "Young Guns" a Threat to Boehner's Speakership?

A pretty long article about the dynamics within the GOP leadership. I found it interesting to read about the personal relationships and ambitions of Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy and Ryan. I personally don't think that Boehner is going to be able to hold onto the House GOP caucus for that much longer because he's much more of an 'old school' Republican/ dealmaker. Also, Cantor seems like a pretty feisty and ambitious lieutenant who is much more respected by the more conservative, GOP freshmen. I'd rather keep Boehner on top; Cantor doesn't seem very smart or willing to work with Democrats on anything, which at this point, is necessary for the governing of our country.
