(Newser) – Just the big issue you've been waiting to hear the candidates weigh in on: prom. What does Michele Bachmann think about the dance? Bachmann believes only boys can ask girls to the prom, which could raise questions in some voters' minds about various diplomatic dances every president is expected to perform. The prom issue came up when Bachmann revealed in a recent TV interview that she never went to prom because no one asked her, notes the San Francisco Chronicle. When Sean Hannity responded that times have changed "big time" when it comes to girls asking boys, Bachmann said: "Our girls are not allowed to do that in our house. They have to wait for the boys to call."
