A spokesman for Dennis Hastert says his boss isn't leaving the speaker's office -- assuming, of course, that the Democrats don't win control of the House of Representatives in November. Asked about calls for Hastert to step down over his handling of the Mark Foley matter, spokesman Ron Bonjean says: "The speaker has and will lead the Republican conference to another majority in the 110th Congress."
