This endorsement will probably help McCain and hurt Hillary. But it hurts Ann most of all, because she's lost all credibility. I have two of her books (one up above). They're headed for the trash bin, as is her career.
Update: Jake Tapper, perhaps sensing how bad this could be for Hillary does a little comparison with McCain:
Factually, it's a ludicrous claim. On judges, abortion, same sex marriage, taxes, health care, the war in Iraq, and on and on…he's demonstrably more conservative.
Clinton's 2006 vote ratings from liberal groups: Americans for Democratic Action - 95%; ACLU - 83%; League of Conservation Voters - 71%.
Her 2006 ratings from conservative groups: National Taxpayers Union - 17%; Americans Conservative Union - 6%; Club for Growth - 8%; Family Research Council - 0%.
McCain's liberal group ratings: ADA - 15%; ACLU - 33%; LCV - 29%.
And conservative group: NTU - 88%; ACU - 65%; CFG - 76%; FRC - 62%.
Conservatives are also panning the latest Pantsuit Pachyderm:
Allahpundit: "The ne plus ultra of conservatives crapping away Iraq in a fit of spite at Maverick: “I think she would be stronger on the war on terrorism.” Madness."
Victor Davis Hanson: "If one studies carefully the Clintama answers on the war on terror, illegal immigration, and Iraq then the magnitude of Republican infighting seems surreal. The gulf between Hillary and McCain is Grand-Canyon like."
Hugh Hewitt: "If Ann Coulter's declares again that she'd campaign for Hillary at CPAC, she will be booed and rightly so."
I thought we'd established that Ann wasn't welcome at CPAC after her antics the last couple of years?
Beth at My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy hits the ball on the screws: "And while Ann Coulter and her allies have been comfortably at their computers banging out their screeds and busy with self-promotion when they aren’t sitting at home watching American Idol, men and women have been risking their lives every single day overseas. What has Coulter or any of us had to sacrifice during the war? Nothing–while our military men and women risk everything, thousands paying the ultimate price. They deserve better. Supposedly pro-war “conservatives” like Coulter and her allies who would rather elect the defeatists? Not so much. Some clueless boob wrote the other day (I can’t remember where, sorry!) that he’ll “survive” a Clinton or Obama presidency. Well, duh. Of course these selfish creatures will “survive.” But I guess it doesn’t matter if others don’t survive, if you’re a selfish, small-minded, immature coward."
On the Republican side, John McCain appears in the middle of the GOP pack, as the 20th most-conservative senator, with no credible chance of being the “most conservative” (a rating that South Carolina’s Jim DeMint runs away with). McCain is, however, more conservative than GOP stalwarts like Orrin Hatch, Thad Cochran, Sam Brownback, and Lamar Alexander.
RINOS! Let's kick Sam Brownback out of the party! Of course, the real RINO here is Ann Coulter.
Update III: Another rating system ranks McCain as the 94th most liberal senator.
