“It’s like having the snot beat out of you”

Michele Bachmann was just the guest on a Conversations with the Candidates series Des Moines Register columnist Kathie Obradovich is hosting (it will air on Iowa Public Television).  Obradovich asked Bachmann what had been the most difficult thing about the campaign.

Bachmann’s answer: “It’s the fact that we work nearly every day about 18 hours a day and that’s a relentless pace to keep up, but I defend the process…Someone said it’s like having the snot beat out of you every day and honestly, I defend that. It’s good because we are vying to be the next leader of the free world. Being president of the United States is a tough job. I’m up for it.”
