South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is considered to be on the short list of potential running mates for Mitt Romney, but her top choices for the vice presidential slot are Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal or former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.

Haley held a Facebook “chat” with constituents Wednesday, answering questions posed to her on her Facebook wall.

“In your opinion, who should Romney choose for his VP candidate?” asked someone named Ryan Hodge.

“I think there are amazing candidates for VP and believe whoever Gov. Romney chooses will be part of a dream team,” Haley replied. “My preference would be Bobby Jindal or Condi Rice.”

Other interesting things we learned in this chat: Haley’s a fan of the 80s song “Photograph” by Def Leppard.
