The Conservative Political Action Conference wrapped up its three-day gathering on Saturday, but not before Rep. Michele Bachmann took some parting shots at Hillary Clinton during her speaking slot.

“We will have a woman president, just the right one,” Bachmann said, adding that the Republican Party is “the only party that had a woman on the presidential ticket this century.”

That woman would be 2008 vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

Bachmann also riffed on Clinton’s “reset button” moment with Russia, saying, “they’re busy resetting the boundaries in Ukraine even as we speak,” to loud cheers from the crowd.
