Michele Bachmann's political legacy

John King and David Gergen discuss why Rep. Michele Bachmann won't run again in 2014 and how her legislative career will be remembered by her colleagues and constituents.

In a video statement, Bachmann said her decision has nothing to do with an ethics investigation into her presidential campaign or her concerns about not winning another election.

But King points out she won by fewer than 5,000 votes last time she ran. "The Republicans win today by having Michele Bachmann step aside," he says. "The leadership would prefer a different candidate."

Gergen: IRS scandal not a partisan issue

Editor's note: On AC360° David Gergen and Dana Bash discussed the controversy surrounding the IRS targeting conservative groups.

The Internal Revenue Service has identified two "rogue" employees in the agency's Cincinnati office as being principally responsible for "overly aggressive" handling of requests by conservative groups for tax-exempt status, a congressional source told CNN.

In a meeting on Capitol Hill, acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller described the employees as being "off the reservation," according to the source. It was not clear precisely what the alleged behavior involved.
