Michele Bachmann drops out of leadership race

Wonderful news. They both are terrific conservatives, and it’s good to see that they are not going to allow the media to divide them and have them fight each other. I also think that the GOP leadership in the House should be as conservative as possible, but not flashy and polarizing (at least not because of personality). This would deny the Dems a target like we have in Pelosi and Obama.

This will allow Bachmann to do what she does best, be the partisan conservative that debates the MSM, without having her partisanship turn off the squishy middle, as would happen if she is part of the GOP leadership.
My guess is that she’s flexed her muscles, proved that she’s a force to be reckoned with, and will let Hensarling (who also is a perfectly good conservative) get the nod. Michele can now concentrate on legislation, and may be thinking about perhaps running for the Senate in 2012 against Klobuchar (although she may prefer to wait until 2014 for the lower-hanging fruit, Al Franken).
