'The Only Person Who Could Beat Hillary Clinton Is Michelle Obama'

Was he serious? It certainly wasn't obvious that conservative commentator Ben Domenech was kidding when on today's Up With Steve Kornacki he said that "the only person I think who could beat Hillary Clinton is Michelle Obama."

Domenech's comment came during a segment on the subject of who might jump into the race should Hillary decide not to run.  The mere fact that there was such a segment suggests that the controversy over Hillary's email might not be the much ado "about nothing" that some claim. 

"Very entertaining" doesn't begin to describe what such a race would be. There might not be enough popcorn in all America!  "Ready for Michelle," anyone?


STEVE KORNACKI:  Ben, Ben, quick thought on this.

BEN DOMENECH: The Clinton machine is alive and everything else is dead. There's just one, the only party, they will win. And I just don't think that there's anybody who can challenge her even though it would be very entertaining I think if someone, inspiring -- the only person who I think could beat Hillary Clinton is Michelle Obama.  Other than that, nobody.
