Ann Coulter on "Double Down: Game Change 2012": "I do not believe the Hillary story"

As part of a Halloween treat for Conservative viewers and readers, on Thursday evening Piers Morgan welcomed the return of author and commentator Ann Coulter.

Joining "Piers Morgan Live" for her second primetime interview in as many weeks, the woman behind the new book "Never Trust a Liberal Over Three-Especially a Republican" offered her personal perspective on another piece of polarizing literature, "Double Down: Game Change 2012."

The forthcoming book from Mark Halperin and John Heilemann reports that the Obama campaign considered removing Joe Biden from the ticket in 2012, and inserting Hillary Clinton, in hopes of bolstering the president's chances at winning re-election.

"I do not believe the Hillary story," said Coulter. "Somebody may have said 'oh, let's present this to the president' ... for one thing, it's always bad to switch your vice president midstream, it looks like you made a mistake. Number two, despite the fact that Biden's makes all kinds of crazy gaffe's that would be career-ending for a Republican, he actually does have a common man's touch that is generally absent from the Democratic Party."

After sharing her position on the proposed partnership between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the 51-year-old lawyer and self-described polemicist offered the following piece of analysis when discussing the assumed alliance of the president and Bill Clinton:

"I think it's not as friendly a relationship as it seems to be," she suggested. "I think Clinton sort of wanted to be, for one thing, the only Democratic president in recent history elected to a second term. And, number one, Barack Obama did something Bill Clinton never did, and that's get more than 50 percent of the American people to vote for him."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Coulter, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Its cowardice, patronizing and plain racist to make a comment like "go back to Africa' and have it be called ' a joke'. Lady you need to examine your lack of social graces and why a dignified and intelligent man like our President would simple toss your brilliant writing off the likes of Mount lack taste and judgement and Piers Morgan is silly to ever entertain the likes of you.

    she said it was a joke because conservatives don't actually believe the Kenya conspiracy .. a fringe do.. just as a fringe of democrats believe in 911 conspiracies. She went on to explain how the birth certificate was first produced by conservative media . conservative journalists disavowed birtherism right away. the joke is that so many liberals actually believe birtherism is a mainstream conservative opinion . In any case .. Ann coulter is actually very pro black .. she has written a great deal about black history and their oppression.

    Oh no not again. Why is the woman allowed to open her mouth? Each time she does toxins spills out.

      I used to think that but listened closer and now agree with a lot of what she says. She's not afraid to give true analyses of some real problems facing our country that so many in the media irresponsibly won't.

        No disrespect, but anything that comes out of that woman's mouth is garbage and even if it's just one thing she says that's true.. it doesnt mean anything. SHE'S JUST EVIL!

    Has Ann ever left her "Valley of The Dolls" persona?
    Perhaps she finds their fatalism, addiction to self, and lack of consistent morals heroic.
    Somehow, like The Dolls, she does manage to combine attractiveness with loathing.
    What a daily life.

    Needed to create you the bit of word to thank you as before just for the remarkable views you have shown on this site. It's quite remarkably open-handed of people like you to give unhampered what exactly some people would've distributed for an electronic book to help make some dough on their own, especially considering that you might well have tried it if you wanted. These advice in addition served like a good way to recognize that the rest have the same dreams just as my very own to know the truth somewhat more with regard to this problem. I think there are some more pleasant situations up front for folks who go through your site.
