1. bachmann will not be able to run in the sixth again
Not when she says she is an Iowan, and not even mentioning Minnesota in her race to be the next president
she has all about forgotten Minnesota
I wonder who the gops are going to run??

4. Her area is heavily funded and voted on by conservatives. There needs to be
a strong independent-Dem runner. Vocal and able to address strongly for the people. Able to explain things so that the un-knowing can learn something.

2. I heard on AM 950 that it costs $30 to vote in the Iowa straw poll
though the campaigns can buy ballots for their supporters to fill out - it was not clear if the campaigns can stuff the ballot boxes with them.

3. One has to be an Iowan of at least age 18 to vote in the IA Straw Poll.

Campaigns buy tickets for supporters to a fundraising dinner where the supporters vote.

5. I can't wait for Bachmann to run.
Her ignorance will provide much comedy. I just hope she doesnt back out too soon.
