If 25 people voted against Bonehead, anp Pelosi got all her votes, would she be speaker? Or was the vote inside the caucus?

To become Speaker, you need to get a majority: 435/2 + 1.

So Pelosi would have been locked out on any second or third vote.

I think “somebody” is trying to become an insider, and thus get more power/publicity/bragging rights later.
