Kristol: 'Kind Of A Fan' Of Boehner "I'm very pro Speaker Boehner. He did take my call late last night, around 1 a.m. They told him Christie was on the other line and he said, 'Eh, I'm talking to Kristol. First thing's first.' Boehner's done really well through all of this, I'm kind of a fan of his. I think he'll be re-elected as Speaker and I think a lot of people are taking out their frustrations on him as he's managing this difficult process."
