Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said Thursday that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin would be “crazy” to run for president in 2012.

Coulter re-stated her belief that her “love” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the only Republican able to beat Obama in the next election, but Coulter said that Palin could certainly win the nomination.

“I love her, I think she could win the nomination,” Coulter said during a Thursday interview on “The Last Word” with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell.

“I especially love her for her enemies. I’m insanely jealous of that. I love her for how she makes liberal heads explode,” said Coulter, “but I think it would be a step down for her to run for president.”

“It’s like saying Rush Limbaugh should run for president. She’s huge, she has enormous power,” Coulter continued, “She sends out a Twitter on death panels and everyone’s talking about it. I think it would be crazy for her to run for president.”

In the same interview, Coulter jokingly told O’Donnell, “[Sean Hannity] knows more than you. You’re a Democrat.”
