First, the good news:

High-level Iowa meets for Bachmann

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is meeting with top Iowa Republicans Friday morning during her trip to Des Moines, POLITICO has learned.

Second, the great news:

Palin Putting Out Presidential Feelers in Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has tasked her aides with quietly gauging her level of support for a potential presidential campaign by making inquiries to a select pool of likely allies and grassroots activists in Iowa, RealClearPolitics has learned.

And, finally, dare we dream?

Palin-Bachmann 2012?

Just imagine the soaring tag-team rhetoric that would come from that dynamic duo:

"I knew that we'd be buddies when I met her when she said, 'Drill here, drill now.' And then I replied, 'Drill, baby, drill' and then we both said, 'You betcha!'"

-- Sarah Palin, quoted by the Wall Street Journal, recalling a previous meeting with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)

And no, I didn't make that quote up. It's real.
