Chuck Todd said that he thinks it is possible that Hillary Clinton "secretly hopes that Paul Ryan remains as Speaker of the House [i.e., that the Republicans maintain control of the house] to counter the progressives" [i.e., Bernie Sanders wing] from her own party. Chuck said, that way Hillary could tell the "progressives" that she of course would like to go farther [in legislation], but she is stymied by the Republicans and Paul Ryan and she has to work with him to get legislation through.
I actually hope that it is true and I hope that the Republicans retain the House and the Speaker remains Paul Ryan. If Hillary Clinton does win the presidency and Speaker Ryan remains as such, then I believe, like I have heard radio host of the Hugh Hewitt Show, Hugh Hewitt say, "Paul Ryan then would be the voice of the Republican Party." That would be a helpful thing to begin to mend the party from the division that the Donald Trump candidacy and many of his bad actor supporters, like alt-right people, have caused.
