Michele vs. Hillary, anyone?
-- Update at bottom --

It's the campaign nobody is asking for, but we might get it anyway.

Michele Bachmann was barely able to hold onto her solidly Republican exurban district last election cycle, and in May 2013 she announced she won't run for another term. Yet she still believes she'd be a viable presidential contender in 2016.

Bachmann worries women's museum honoring her will become "shrine to abortion" [VIDEO]

Bachmann speaks during yesterday's hearing.
A website for the proposed National Women's History Museum devotes a page to honoring Michele Bachmann for being a great mother.

(383 representatives voted in favor.)

"As it's currently written, the legislation lacks the necessary safeguards to ensure that the proposed museum will not become an ideological shrine to abortion that will eventually receive federal funding and a prominent spot on the National Mall," Bachmann said on the House floor.
