Paul Ryan "reluctantly" took the job back in 2015, and now apparently he's out.

You realize something when you take this job, it's a big job with a lot riding on you ... but you also know this is not a job that does not last forever. ... You realize you hold the office for just a small part of our history. So you better make the most of it. - Paul Ryan
