Bachmann: I Would Be a One-Term President

Monday, 11 Apr 2011 04:39 PM

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann said that if she wins the White House, she would not seek a second term, the Des Moines Register reported Monday.

"I'm a principled reformer, and my goal is to see the country turn around," she said. "I'm also committed to being a one-term president if that's what it takes in order to turn things around, because this is not about a personal ambition.

"It's about getting our financial house in order and to become respected again in the world on an international scale," Bachmann said in a telephone interview with newspaper.

Bachmann has been visiting early primary states, and has said she would make a decision soon on whether she plans to run. She’s a tea party favorite, but Bachmann believes she can appeal to a broader audience as well.

"I believe that whether a person is a Republican or an independent or a Democrat, or whether they're no political persuasion at all, they love their country, and they want it to work, and they're looking for someone who's a practical, reasonable, fair-minded person," she said.
