Ann Coulter tells Philadelphia audience she’s still hoping Chris Christie changes his mind

A conservative pundit came to Philadelphia saying she’s holding out hope that New Jersey’s governor will take a run for the White House.

“I think my love for Chris Christie is well known,” said Ann Coulter.  The Republican Governor of New Jersey is “the best chance” for the party to beat President Obama, she said.  Coulter believes the president has a “glass jaw” and can be defeated.

“If we can just run a Republican that can put two sentences together and not slobber all over himself I think we can win,” she told an audience at the event sponsored by WPHT radio.

Coulter suggests lobbying people other than Governor Christie.

“The most important thing the Tea Party or any right winger can do is apparently write to Mrs. Chris Christie and the Christie children and tell them how much fun it would be to live in the White House that’s the only objection that this guy keeps putting up,” she said. “I predict that if it’s not Christie it would be Mitt Romney.”

Christie has categorically ruled out running for President in 2012.
