It takes some political derring-do to launch a presidential campaign from a town named Waterloo.
Tea Party conservative Michele Bachmann chose Waterloo, Iowa, her birthplace, to announce a run for the Republican presidential nomination. And she wasted no time in going on the offensive.
“Make no mistake about it, Barack Obama will be a one-term president,” Bachmann said.
At the moment her star is rising — a poll of Republicans in Iowa showed her almost even with Mitt Romney, and her strong performance at the New Hampshire debate got people to do a double-take.
