Bachmann rules out presidential bid
ST. PAUL -- A darling of conservative media will not run for president in 2012.
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann waited until an Iowa newspaper asked before she took herself out of the race.
"Goodness, I've only been in the House for three years, so, no, I'm not considering anything like that," the Minnesota Republican told the Sioux City Journal.
Previously, she left the door open for a presidential campaign, saying she would run if God sent her a message.
