Boehner elected House Majority Leader (includes link to a pronunciation guide)

The House of Representatives Republican caucus elected Representative John A. Boehner as majority leader on Thursday, sending Tom DeLay's henchman Roy Blunt to defeat (he will remain as minority whip in the leadership), as well as beating conservative John Shadegg.

A New York Times article provides guidance to pronouncing Boehner's name. Unfortunately, it is not pronounced the way many of us had hoped.
