And, basically, it's also about us getting the cahones to keep working on persuading people.

"These elections won't even be close if we take one person and make it our priority to utilize what we know is true," she told the crowd at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in the nation's capital. "Persuade one person at a time and we'll take back Washington, D.C."
Bachmann's effort to "take back Washington" includes last month's unveiling the Declaration of Health Care Independence, now signed by nearly 100 lawmakers and approaching 9,000 Americans. The declaration is a commitment to protect the rights of the American people to make their own health decisions, reduce bureaucratic red tape, decrease intergenerational debt and implement 10 common-sense principles for future health-care reform.
Bachmann's CPAC challenge came on the heels of relating a story about her oldest son, who made it a goal in medical school "to persuade one liberal to become a conservative." Her son told her that though his assigned roommate was "a San Francisco liberal," through a determined effort in between classes and exams, he diligently worked the powers of persuasion until one day, his effort was rewarded: The roommate emailed him a Pat Buchanan column from WND.
"I challenge everyone in this room to do what our son did," Bachmann said. "If he can persuade a San Francisco liberal to flip and be a Pat Buchanan, WorldNetDaily-reading conservative, you can do it too!"
Bachmann's story and challenge can be seen beginning at the 2:20 mark of the video below:
