After Boehner fails to rally his troops for "Plan B," is he the right the man for the House's top job?

On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner failed to gain support from GOP colleagues for his "Plan B"  proposal to avert the fiscal cliff, the automatic tax increases and across-the-board spending cuts set to take effect January 1. As of now, Congress has left for the holiday, indicating we are nowhere near a deal.
