Still the Speaker of the House
I thought, briefly, while I was on vacation to start a Speaker of the House power rankings. But placing Boehner, first, and projecting him to retain the Speakership because, in large part, Republicans don't like change. Boehner retained the role as Speaker of the House. Some Republicans didn't sound particularly excited about having Boehner maintain his role. Some voted for Eric Cantor. Others, instead, opted for Allen West, despite being defeated in his bid to be re-elected, or Colin Powell. But, at any rate. Boehner will be the Speaker, still.
