JOHN BOEHNER: My instinct is that we have -- a leadership table -- that reflects -- the broad -- group of members that are in our conference.

DIANE SAWYER: So, that says Tea Party?

JOHN BOEHNER: It says I want to make sure they represent -- the broad interest of all of our members. We're gonna have --

DIANE SAWYER: But it's fine with you? For sure?

JOHN BOEHNER: Whoever the members elect -- I'm going to serve with. And serve with successfully.

DIANE SAWYER: I think your instinct says that you are in no way going to answer my question.

JOHN BOEHNER: That'd be correct. (LAUGH) I should have just given you the Boehner shrug. All of the print reporters know what that means.

DIANE SAWYER: It means try as you might?

JOHN BOEHNER: I have no intention of answering that question (LAUGH)

DIANE SAWYER: It's a great gesture.

JOHN BOEHNER: I never even knew it. The reporter's all know it, oh they all got it and someone finally told me somebody described it as the Boehner shrug.

DIANE SAWYER: I'm going to try it, I'm going to try and steal it. Do it again.

JOHN BOEHNER: It's got everything -- eyebrows, shoulders.

DIANE SAWYER: Thanks again.
