You sure can.  Let's say that you've already created your column chart.  Now drag another item, more precisely the data that you want to show with the line chart, into the area on top (the one that says "Drop data fields here"). That creates a second series.  Now right-click on that new series and select "Change chart type".  You'll get the familiar popup window that allows you to select the Line chart.

This will get you both a Column and a Line chart into one chart object.
