The Speaker of the House Initiative

Let's have some fun with this new Congress, shall we?

I'm proposing the Speaker of the House Initiative.

It goes like this: some enterprising individual declares his or her intent to become Speaker of the House. Since this position doesn't need to be filled by a sitting representative, anyone can apply. This person creates all the necessary social media outlets to stay connected and releases ideas for legislation he or she would propose as Speaker.

This person could also propose alternatives to current procedures and legislation.

At the end of, oh, say, one year, ask for a vote in the House. If nothing else, it would make the legislative process a bit more interesting.
