I would like to store a bootable backup as well as Time Machine backups on my Lacie external drive. I plan to use Carbon Copy Cloner to create the bootable backup and Time Machine for incremental backups. Should i partition the Lacie drive for each of the 2 backups? Will the drive allow me to make both backups without partitioning the drive?

The Clone should create an ' image ' file and time machines does something similar but in sets.  You shouldn't have an issue storing them both on the same partition.
