"I cannot and will not give up my family time." – U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., in laying out his conditions for being the next speaker of the house
Paul Ryan may soon be second in line to the presidency. The congressman is seen as a rare, unifying figure between the GOP's bitterly divided establishment and tea party factions.
But Ryan, 45, threw out a curveball, declaring that time with his wife and three young children was a non-negotiable condition to taking the House speakership.
Working parents everywhere cheered. For one thing, it was nice to have a prominent dad talking about family time being a priority — because "having it all" isn't just an issue for moms.
