Bachmann's Already Picking Her VPSubmitted by lynnopoly on Thu, 12/01/2011 - 14:46
Michele Bachmann, who's been lagging in the polls recently, got some people's attention late yesterday by naming some potential running mates should she win the GOP nomination. In separate interviews, she told both the Des Moines Register and CNN that she'd consider Republican rival Rick Santorum a strong VP or attorney general pick. "He’s very sharp on legal issues, very astute, and I would consider him for [vice president] or another cabinet position or I’d even have him on my list for vice president," she told the Register. She continued the VP speculation on CNN with Greta van Susteren. "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."
