http://ask.sagemath.org/question/10357/linear-programming-with-algebraic-numbers/?answer=15247#post-id-15247I do not think so. But with the PPL solver you can solve LP over Q.
Look at that :
sage: p = MixedIntegerLinearProgram(solver="PPL")
sage: x = p.new_variable()
sage: p.add_constraint(2*x[1]+3*x[2] == 1)
sage: p.solve()
0
sage: p.get_values(x)
{1: 0, 2: 1/3}
