Bachmann has not been an executive running a state. She is very fine as far as she goes but one of the biggest Presidential functions is picking personnel and getting them into the right jobs. She may make excellent appointments, we just don’t know about her but we have seen Perry do this well for ten years.
You can be personally immoral in some ways and still do those well. Warren Harding was very good at putting the right people in place including his running mate Calvin Coolidge. The result was to take the Panic of 1920 and turn it into the roaring twenties. This despite that he played poker and drank, both were illegal after prohibition started at the end of the Wilson administration.

Dwight Eisenhower on the other hand was very good personally but did not remove a lot of people who ultimately lied to him to the injury of the nation. He actually appointed the infamous warren court judges who did such violence to the constitution.
