Has Michele Bachmann Tipped Her Hand Concerning a Run for President?

Bookmark and Share Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, the leader of the House TEA Party Caucus and darling of the TEA movement has told CNN that she will make a decision regarding a run for President early this summer.

Figuring in to Bachmanns decision will be her contention that the Republican presidential nominee will be decided by voters in four early-primary states. That thinking is a little ambiguous because it fails to specifically address the early caucuses of Iowa and Nevada, tow of the first of four nominating contests. Iowa, the very first contest in the nation, is fertile ground for Bachmann. She is a native of the state and has regional appeal with conservatives and loyal followers in the evangelical base that strongly influences its caucus contest.

Since raising the prospects of running for President, the Congresswoman has swung by Iowa for a speaking engagement before that base. But she has also ventured into South Carolina, the second primary to be held in the nation, and plans on a few engagements in New Hampshire where the first in the nation primary contest is held. So Bachmann is surely testing some of those early four primaries.

Bachmann tells CNN;

“We need a nominee who really understands the times that we live in, who knows what to do in response to that, and has the political courage to do what has to be done,”

She adds;

“Very tough decisions will be made, and I think our nominee needs to be willing to be a one term president if that’s necessary to get the job done.”

So is Michele willing to run for President on a “one term and do what needs to be done campaign platform? If anyone has the chutzpa to do so, its here. And the thought of having a President who is not concerned about reelection, is a thought that will certainly excite her TEA Party supporters. It may also appeal to Independent voters. The question is, will it be enough to convince Republican primary and caucus goers that she is can be an electable nominee for President.
