Michele Bachmann's VP candidates: Donald Trump, Rick Santorum

"I have just the highest respect for Rick Santorum. He's a very sharp guy, and I could easily see making him attorney general," Bachmann tells the Des Moines Register. "He's very sharp on legal issues, very astute, and I would consider him for that or another cabinet position or I'd even have him on my list for vice president. I have very high regard for Rick Santorum. "And I'm not just saying that. I mean that."

She also tells CNN there are plenty of other candidates for the possible VP spot.

"We've got a lot of wonderful candidates who would fit that bill. Easily comes to mind I think would be Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina. Marco Rubio of Florida certainly would be in that category. There's a lot of great people out there. And Donald Trump is someone that I think a lot of people would be intrigued with, too," says Bachmann.

We aren't sure we'd hold our breath for a Bachmann-Trump 2012 ticket.
