As an Iowa native, a Tea Party favorite, a prodigious fund raiser and a woman with a flair for getting known, Rep. Michelle Bachmann could cause a stir in the coming caucus and primary season for the GOP Presidential nomination....Now, she is still very much a long shot and likely too polarizing to beat President Obama....but in a field of wooden candidates for her party's nod, she could do some damage...
Ms. Bachmann has been all over Iowa playing up her roots in Waterloo. She raised over $13M in her Congressional race last year, most of it from individual donors and only 3% from PACS.
With the race nearly upon us and T-Paw the only announced candidate, a lot could happen....And I don't think the President's performance in this Libya mess has helped his chances, although Mr. Obama still must be considered a favorite for reelection.
I would pay a king's ransom to see the look on Middle Class Mike's and Danny F.'s faces if she was taking the oath in 2013.
