Nope.

In order to be Speaker of the House, you need to be a member of the House of Representatives. Dr. Paul is retiring at the end of the current session. The election for Speaker will occur at the start of the new session. So, Dr. Paul is not eligible and to advocate for him being placed in the position is to take a completely unconstitutional position.

I'd love for the Speaker of the House to be someone other than Rep. Boehner, however. Especially if that person was liberty-minded.
