ISE 802.1x EAP-TLS machine and smart card authentication

I suspect I know the answer to this, but thought that I would throw it out there anway...

With Cisco ISE 1.2 is it possible to enable 802.1x machine AND user smart card  authentication simultaneously for wired/wireless clients (specifically  Windows 7/8, but Linux or OSX would also be good).  I can find plenty of  information regarding 802.1x machine authentication (EAP-TLS) and user  password authentication (PEAP), but none about dual EAP-TLS  authentication using certificates for machines and users at the same time.  I think I can figure out how to configure such a policy in ISE, but options seem to be lacking on the client end.  For example, the Windows 7 supplicant seems only able to present either a machine or user smart card certificate, not one then the other.  Plus, I am not sure how the client would know which certificate to present, or if the type can be specified from the authenticator.
