Wearing a necklace only the bling ring could love, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann told a crowd of rapt CPAC members that "we will have a woman for president, just the right one." The conference's closing events coincide with today's celebration of International Women's Day.

Bachmann also made sure to remind the conservative audience about the unfortunate Sarah Palin disaster of 2008. "Don't forget, we are the party, the only party, that had a woman on the presidential ticket this century," Bachmann said.

In February, however, the failed Republican presidential candidate said in no uncertain terms that Americans aren't ready for a woman president. "I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt. People don't hold guilt for a woman."

Happy International Women's Day, everyone.
