Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) looks at a cake commemorating the 100th birthday of former U.S. president Ronald Reagan at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington February 10, 2011. Bachmann was the first speaker on the schedule at CPAC and has gained an increasingly high profile with her fearlessness towards uniting with the Tea Party and being a conservative voice in Congress.
