Bye-Bye Bachmann – For Now

As I suspected last night, Michele Bachmann has stepped aside and suspended her presidential campaign after garnering only 5% of the vote in last night’s Iowa Caucus.

Bachmann certainly had her moments in this campaign but they were fleeting. For all her talk of being a consistent conservative she rarely got beyond platitudes and simply didn’t inspire confidence. I think she did a lot of damage to herself when she claimed she had been told that the Gardasil vaccine caused mental retardation.

At the moment, Bachmann’s political future is unclear. She hasn’t decided if she will seek re-election in Minnesota’s sixth congressional district. However, I don’t think this is the last we’ll hear of Michele Bachmann. It wouldn’t surprise me if she were to challenge Mark Dayton in the 2014 Minnesota gubernatorial election.
