It's no secret that Eric Cantor wants to be the first Jewish speaker of the House. He is an impatient man on the move, and the only mystery is when he'll go for it.
Will he try it before the end of the current term, hold off until the 113th Congress convenes in January 2013, assuming Republicans will still control the House, or wait until John Boehner steps down?
Friends and foes alike point to a quote by Cantor in his high school yearbook: "I want what I want when I want it."
