PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- Tennessee Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn will consider running for president in 2016 -- if she sees an opportunity to do so, an aide to the 7th District Republican told RealClearPolitics. Blackburn is scheduled to be one of the speakers at a New Hampshire Republican rally this weekend but was not previously known to be mulling a White House bid.

"If there's a door to kick down, she's willing to kick it down," the aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said. "These are the kinds of events you go to -- test the waters, and see what the reaction is."

Why would anyone in their right mind want to be President of the U.S.?.....unless they’re just looking for the perks - a la Zer0.

“I’ve never heard of her…….”

Given that, all of us KNOW that she’s much better than the Hillabeast or Fauxahantas. She’s gotta be, since those first two wenches have the combined IQ of a cumquat.

She's a good one. And I think it would be good for the GOP to field more women in the primaries.

Marsha, please do us a favor and run for the Senate.

Tennessee has 2 complete idiots that need to be removed.

“I’ve never heard of her”

She’s great. If you like Michele Bachmann you’ll like her. The two are very close.

Hate to see her speaking in Soviet Red Hampshire...she is a great conservative (I met her in East Tennessee), and she won’t receive the best of welcomes here in blue country. I hope that doesn’t discourage her.

I would be very pleased with a Cruz/Blackburn ticket in 2016.

They are very similar in their depth and breadth of knowledge, and both are bulldogs. Cruz/Blackburn sounds delicious!
