Don't hold your breath, honey. You won't get a top spot in the GOP boys club without submitting your private parts to invasive ultrasound.

Howard cited her previous leadership experience as majority whip and she would use the position to help orient the large incoming freshman class. "I have no agenda," the Mocksville Republican said.
