Conservative commentator Ann Coulter is trying to fan the flames today of Mitt Romney joining John McCain on the Republican ticket.
Coulter has received quite a bit of attention in conservative circles for saying she would vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton over McCain, the all-but presumptive nominee, because he isn't a real conservative.
Thursday night on Fox Business Network, Coulter suggested she might hold her nose and support McCain if he picked Romney as his running mate.
"I thought it was very gentlemanly for Mitt Romney to pull out right before McCain spoke at CPAC. It occurred to me then that if McCain weren’t a dunce, what he would do is take Mitt Romney as his vice president. That is the only way I think you could get me to vote for him. That's my final offer.
Host Neil Cavuto made sure he heard right. "Still not very comfortable with the man at the top of the ticket. But the man at the top of the ticket said himself he doesn't know much about economics. Maybe Mitt Romney could help with that. And moreover, it would put Mitt Romney in the lead for 2012, which he says he will be looking at again," Coulter replied.
The outspoken commentator later predicted that she won't have to vote for Clinton, after all.
"Well, I suspect the election will not be close and I will not have to pull the lever for the she-devil," Coulter said. "I do think a serious argument could be made. It's terrifying that this is the point we've come to in this country right now, that a serious case can be made Hillary is the more conservative candidate."
