When it comes to the prospect of Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) appears to be relying on higher powers to step in.
In a Monday interview with right-wing radio host Jan Markell, Bachmann was asked whether she was "one of those who just assumes" that Hillary Clinton will be "coronated."
I don’t at all because I look at the story of David and Goliath," Bachmann said, according to audio posted by Right Wing Watch. "All David needed was one smooth stone to fell the giant. It wasn’t the stone, it wasn’t David, it was the strong right arm of a Holy God.”
Bachmann then extrapolated that story to 2016, saying that it's "up to us" to communicate with Him.
“If we repent, if we cry out to God, we have no idea what the Lord God will do for us in 2016," Bachmann said.
 Firstly, I do not like the word "coronated"; it is too much like something Samuel Johnson used in place ( - or should I say "in lieue of"" - ) the far simpler "crowned". That is how we learned things back when I went to school, the simple noun, such as "crown", and then followed by various Latin and Greek forms to use as adjectives and derivatives for which the English was lacking.

For example, as an adjective for "crown", we would use "coronal" and for the act of placing a crown, "coronation", to serve for possible English equivalents, such as "crown-ish" or "crownlike" or "crownly" in the first instance, and "crown-placing" in the second.

Secondly, perhaps Ms. Bachmann could use the services of her husband, who is known for his abilities to straighten out the natural proclivities of various humans, or so he claims.
