WASHINGTON, DC- Jan. 05: Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, Rep. Robert A. Brady, D-Pa., Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Calif., and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., in front row, and clerks keep a tally as the reading clerk, center, calls each member's name for the roll call vote for the election of Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. The final tally was 241 votes for Rep. John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, who becomes the 53rd Speaker; 173 votes for outgoing Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and 19 for other Democrats or voting "present." Boehner and Peter A. DeFazio, D-Ore., did not vote. Heath Shuler, D-N.C., a conservative Democrat who opposed Pelosi for Democratic leader to protest what he sees as her failure to chart a centrist course as Speaker, drew 11 of the 19 Democratic protest votes. There were two votes cast for John Lewis, D-Ga., and five for other Democrats, including Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer, D-Md. One Demcrat voted "present." (Photo by Scott J.
