Breaking: Michele Bachmann drops out of the race for president

So at least for now, Michele Bachmann will not be the US’s first woman president.

The Republican field is now led by an all male ménage à cinq, though Perry is currently “assessing” if he should keep wasting money. It’s very likely the three way of Romney, Santorum, and Paul that emerged in Iowa will dominate the Republican primary. Though obviously Gingrich has no idea when to just go away.
