Early Wednesday morning, 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS showed video of Rep. Michele Bachmann’s exchange with President Bush Tuesday night. The video shows Bachmann grabbing onto and holding the president for almost 30 seconds. Within hours, that video was blasted all over the Internet and viewed almost 250,000 times by the lunch hour. It was linked on national news Web sites and blogs across the country a New York Times blogger even wrote about the story — 5 Eyewitness News/St. Paul-Minneapolis.

Question (from 5 Eyewitness News): So what do you think? Was the newly-elected sixth-district congresswoman out of line? Is this no big deal?
