DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene with a bit of pre-holiday cheer. On the fourth day of December, a member of Congress brings to us 16 things she'll miss about Congress now that she's retiring. It's Michele Bachmann. The Minnesota Republican's not running for a fifth term, and she wrote in BuzzFeed that she'll miss smoke-filled rooms, Seersucker Thursdays, daily reminders of our nation's founding, friendly chats with Nancy Pelosi and hanging out with D.C.'s most eligible bachelors. It's MORNING EDITION.
