Michele Bachmann-Donald Trump Ticket in 2012?

by at . Comments

GOP Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann will not be her party's nominee.

Sorry, hardcore believers out there. It's not personal, it's just not happening. But why let that stop her from speculating on who she'd pick as her Vice President in 2012?

"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.

Another name on the Minnesota Congresswoman's short list: The Donald!

Bachmann, Trump

Who are three Republicans who will not be the next President?

"We've got a lot of wonderful candidates who would fit that bill. Easily comes to mind I think would be Jim DeMint of South Carolina. Marco Rubio of Florida," she told CNN.

"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," added Bachmann, hilariously.

Trump, of course, toyed with the idea of running for U.S. President himself this year, then backed down, implying he could've won if he tried, but wasn't up for it.

He's the best.
