EXCEPT THAT DEAN HAD BEEN AN OUTSTANDING GOVERNOR:

Bachmann's unlikely model: Howard Dean (JONATHAN MARTIN, 7/12/11, Politico)

The party's grass roots are radicalized. A blunt-talking, anti-establishment presidential candidate draws big summer crowds by pledging to confront the opposition party president. The political pros, fearing a general election disaster, grow more anxious by the day. Talk begins about how to arrest the outsider's surge.

Michele Bachmann hasn't declared yet that she's running to represent "the Republican wing of the Republican Party," but that's all that's missing from a presidential bid that bears more than a passing resemblance to Democrat Howard Dean's in 2004.


If she had his record she'd be a serious candidate.
