(CNN) - She may not be topping polls as a Republican presidential candidate, but Rep. Michele Bachmann has already put some thought into who she might select as her running mate or appoint to her cabinet.
Bachmann threw out a few names Wednesday when asked who her potential vice-president would be, including fellow candidate Rick Santorum, businessman and reality television host Donald Trump, and influential GOP senators Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Marco Rubio of Florida.
The congresswoman from Minnesota also floated Santorum as a potential attorney general, saying his legal acumen was top notch.
"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 on the Fox News program "On the Record w/ Greta van Susteren."
"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."
Bachmann also said Santorum would be on her list of potential running mates, should she win the Republican presidential nomination. Other names on her list?
"We've got a lot of wonderful candidates who would fit that bill," Bachmann said. "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."
Bachmann has met with Trump four times during her campaign, last meeting with the mogul in mid-November at the Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan.

She would seriously consider Trump as a VP pick? Yet another reason to dismiss her. She's still not thinking clearly.
Did I miss the convention? Was Bachmann win the nomiation?!? Did the 2012 PRESISDENTIAL ELECTION HAPPEN?!? Did she win the election??!?!?!? Does she posses a time machine??? The [kindest] expression that comes to mind is: YOU ARE PUTTING THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE, Michele. May ALL your wishes NOT come true in the New Year - then I'LL have a good year.
What comes to mind is the 1967 movie "The Dirty Dozen", where IQ-deficient Private Pinkley gets "volunteered" to be a General. At least he had the good sense to say "I'd rather be a civilian, sir."

Let's Dumb and Dumber for the number one and two spot, yeah right!
Bachmann-Trump. Bring it on!
I wish that she would stop. My belly is aching from laughing. She is a Bigger joke than the rest of those Circus Clowns.
Someone should wake her up, she must be asleep and dreaming to be even discussing a running mate or cabinet!
Bachmann/Trump? Oh, please, please, please... **Chortles with glee**
Sorry, Michelle. At the GOP primaries I will be voting for Curly and Mo. They make a lot more sense than everyone else vying for the GOP ticket. Huntsman is normal, but GOP rejects normal. So maybe my support for Curly and Mo might give the GOP a new flavor of the month. If so, it will be a vast improvement on current options.
Bachmann picking potential VP candidates is just silly. One thing that is absolutly nesessary for her campaign is to make sure she watches the camera angles and lighting in every public appearance. This campaign must be putting a lot of stress on her or maybe its just natural ageing but she is looking older all the time.
Wait, hold on....This moron is thinking of VP picks, when Bugs Bunny has a better shot at winning the White House than Her.....wow, what drug is she on.
No Sarah Palin on the list?
Wow, talk about rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic....
Michele Bachmann and Donald Trump. Recipe for success.
"Easily comes to mind I think would be..."
a.) You're not winning! This is like announcing you're going to Disney World in the first game of the NFL season.
b.) Announcing that you'd take Rick Santorum put you down percentage points in the polls.
c.) Announcing that you'd take Donald Trump put him up 3 percentage points in the Neilsen ratings.
LOL!! Hey Bachmann...you might want to wait to until your polling in at least double digits before you start picking out your running mate, cabinet, and curtains. Good lord you really are dillusional arent you.
LOL. This is priceless.
She is forgetting the part that she needs to be nominated first to pick a VP!!!!
What planet is this? It saddens me to see beings with such enormous egos.
In your wildest dreams, this Bachmann-Trump ticket would be the real dream team. And the TEA-GOP-Republican parties nightmare!
LOL!! You got to be kidding me. Trump? Demint? Jim Deminted is just another TeaBag with huge mouth and all show and no go along with Trumpy. Not to worry as she will never get anywhere with her campaign.
God help us all if these asinine individuals win...
Still extremists who will not get my vote. We need to win the old republican party back, and get it out of the control of these facist extremists.
This women only wastes everyone's time. Hear that MN. Toss her out on her rear end!
Bachman/Trump 2012? Along that same line of thought, I'm notifying the world that as soon as I get my antigravity device perfected I'll be flying over both the Grand Canyon and over the Great Wall of China. Any day now.
