Lincoln served just one term in Congress too: Allen West hints at prez run

Outgoing Florida Congressman Allen West of Florida hinted that a presidential run could be in his future.

From NPR:
WEST: Look, you know, God closes a door so that he can open up greater doors. I will continue to, you know, stand up and fight for this country. That’s my goal. I have two daughters, 19 and 16, and I want to make sure that they grow up in a great America that provides them all the opportunities that it provided to their mother and father.

NPR's MARTIN: Congressman Allen West is completing his term in Congress. He was kind enough to join us from a House recording studio on Capitol Hill here in Washington, D.C.

WEST: And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.

MARTIN: Duly noted. Congressman West, thank you so much for speaking with us.
And like Lincoln, the Tea Party favorite is a Republican. On, West gave the keynote address--I was there--at CPAC in 2011.

On Lincoln's birthday.
