Both have a frequent presence on Fox News, too. But the sparks could flyif each woman decides to run for president, and Bachmann looks ready to declare soon.

“We’ve never had really two dynamic women run for president in the Republican caucuses,” Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad said Thursday. “I think it would be really interesting.”
