As TPM noted, Bachmann seemed to be saying that she was willing to sacrifice any chance at a second term, in order to get her agenda passed. In many interviews, Bachmann has previously attributed a similar quality to President Obama, such as in his commitment to pass health care reform despite the obvious political costs.

Then again, the question of a Bachmann second term might be academic -- she must first get the people to not rule out a first term.
