Bachmann names Santorum, Trump, DeMint and Rubio as possible vp picks

"We've got a lot of wonderful candidates who would fit that bill," Bachmann said Wednesday night in an interview with Greta van Susteren on Fox News. "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."

In the same interview, Bachmann also said that Santorum might be a good attorney general.

"I think that Rick Santorum is a wonderful man personally, but also, I think that he's very gifted when it comes to the area of legal issues," Bachmann said. "I think I could see him as an attorney general. I think he'd do a great job. I haven't talked to Rick about that, but I think he'd be wonderful, or another cabinet position."

Rubio's name has commonly come up on most short lists for the Republican vice presidential spot, despite repeatedly saying he would not be asked to join the ticket and would not accept if asked.

Herman Cain has also mentioned DeMint as a possible running mate if he were to win the nomination.
