    That would be beautiful for Obama. She's a certifiable wack-a-loon.

    10 times worse.

    I suppose an intelligent conservative woman WOULD seem worse to those on the left. I consider Biden to be more dangerous because he is generally a buffoon that is likely to trip over his tricycle and accidentally push the wrong button with his clown nose.

    This is Bachmann you're talking about right?


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    It is a legitimate complaint by conservatives that Obamacare suffered in that there wasn't really an large consensus to create such a large, new social program. Dems pushed it through simply because they could.

    Isn't it reasonable then, in a similar way, to ask a party not to put into the Presidency a candidate who's social views are strong and around which there isn't really a large consensus, and for whom her sole claim to fame is expressing those views in a strong way?

    Your defense that she is only VP is relevant, and unlike with Palin, I don't immediately say that even on the risk that she could become President would I have to switch my vote. Unlike Palin, whose merely average intelligence and doctrinaire views I think potentially could have put the country into danger had she become President, I don't think Bachman makes the ticket unacceptable. But I would have to think out it.

    I want Rubio.

    An "intelligent conservative woman" would be worse for the 'left', politically. Fortunately, Bachmann wouldn't qualify due to the first adjective.

    ...such anger. It is almost as if you just figured out that the Bachmanns accepted more than $300k in government farm subsidies and that she is as big of a hypocrite as there is in Washington!

    Might as well, just to make the race interesting. Romney has no chance anyway.

    As a registered democrat that would vote for Romney, don't pick a candidate that can hurt you. I would definitely put Bachman in that category. From a policy perspective the upper hand would still be there, but one would have to think of if something happened to the president and she would get the promotion.

    Republicans just need someone that can deliver the South. Doesn't matter who it is.

    To Add: Michelle Bachman is not that someone.
