Brit Hume: Democrats want Bachmann

On Fox News last night, Brit Hume looked askance at Bill Clinton's recent praise for Michele Bachmann.

"I suspect that what he thinks is what I know a lot of Democrats think is that -- in the end -- she would prove, much as Sarah Palin did in the end, toxic to independents, who would think she was just too much.

Too far right and too prone to saying peculiar things that are off-base and so on -- that she would be a much easier target for attack ads and the kind of ridicule that Sarah Palin got."
