Was anybody here a Bachmann fan?Submitted by SoggyBottomBoy on Tue, 01/22/2013 - 04:17
2012 GOP contenders have no regrets as they watch Obama inauguration
Former GOP presidential contenders Newt Gingrich and Rep. Michele Bachmann had hoped to be taking the oath of office on Monday, but they were all smiles as they lined up to watch President Obama deliver an Inaugural address for the second time.
Bachmann (R-Minn.) was snapping photos with her iPhone as she waited in a procession line in the Capitol with other members of Congress.
“This is history,” she told her colleagues.
Bachmann was briefly a front-runner for the Republican nomination after she won the Iowa straw poll in August 2011. She faded in the polls soon after, however, and dropped out of the race in early 2012.
Far from regretful, Bachmann told The Hill it was “a thrill” to watch Obama’s second inauguration.
Still a fan?
