AMES, Iowa (AP) -- The Bible tells wives to be submissive to their husbands. If she were president, would that apply to Michele Bachmann?
In Thursday's Republican debate in Iowa, the Minnesota congresswoman was asked if she would be submissive to her husband. Bachmann, the only woman in the Republican presidential field, says she interprets "submission" to mean "respect."
She said she respects her husband, calling him a "wonderful, godly man and a great father." And she says he respects and loves her, too.
The question by conservative columnist Byron York drew boos from the audience.
