Video: Rep. Michele Bachmann "I'm Not a Politician"

After losing badly in the  Iowa caucuses on Tuesday night, Minnesota Congresswoman and Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann claimed she was "not a politician."

“I am a very real person, I am not a politician,” she said during a speech to her supporters. “Nor do I ever hope or aspire to be a politician.”

Her poor performance at the caucuses has fueled speculation that she will drop out of the presidential race in the coming days. Keith Nahigian, her campaign manager, told the Associated Press that he didn’t know if she planned to abandon her White House bid.

Yesterday, former half-term Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said that Bachmann should drop out.
