Crazy-bug-eyes and beliefs aside, Michele Bachmann is a pretty incredible mom.
The presidential candidate was just a regular
hockey mom — well, except that Bachmann has 5 children and 23 foster children. In her book Core of Conviction she writes:
My kids don't hesitate to give advice on debates, clothing, speeches and they even pass on comments from their friends. It's the best focus group a candidate can have. When my children were growing up, they loved to make fun of their mother – I was an easy target. These days they are very positive and encouraging.
Aw! We're glad she's getting some support!
