Bachmann for President?

Only divine intervention could get Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann to run for president. Talking Points Memo reports that during an interview with World Net Daily, Bachmann was asked if she'd run for president. "If I felt that's what the Lord was calling me to do, I would do it," she said, adding, "but I would not seek a higher office if God is not calling me to do it. That's really my standard." Apparently, she's not speaking metaphorically. During her 2006 campaign for an open house seat she told a right-wing mega-church that after God called her to run she fasted and prayed for three days with her husband and asked God, "Lord, is this what You want? Is this Your will?" noting that "along about the afternoon of day two, He made that calling sure."
