She's a man-eater, she's a battle axe, she's Teflon. From The New York Post to Fox News’ Bill O'Reilly, two of the main Rupert Murdoch owned news agencies were clearly gunning for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton this week and were mystified when the task unraveled.

According to Mediaite, O’Reilly in particular was incensed with how little information he felt Clinton had provided to the House and Senate committees during her testimony on the attack in Benghazi, Libya, last September.

Stumped as to why Clinton remains popular in spite of the controversy, which has engulfed the right but has not found the same traction elsewhere, O'Reilly said her apparent deflections would make her an ideal spokesperson for Teflon, the non-stick utensils company.

O’Reilly complained that most of the questioning which Clinton faced was soft from both Republicans and Democrats, but he acknowledged there had been some intense moments with Republican leaders.

In particular Senator Ron Johnson had pressed Clinton to reveal why survivors of the Libya attack weren't interviewed before the administration’s initial public statement, provoking an angry response from the Secretary.

'With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,' Clinton told him angrily. 'Whether it's because of a protest or whether a guy out for a walk decided to go kill some Americans, what difference, at this point, does it make?'

On his program O’Reilly shot back, 'It makes a huge difference!'

In spite of the controversy, which Republicans have pursued doggedly for months, the majority of the nation still gives Clinton high marks for her post as secretary of state. O’Reilly claimed that this meant most Americans were simply not holding Clinton accountable.

Clinton's polished performance led O’Reilly to predict she would be a 'formidable' candidate in 2016 if she runs, pointing to how frequently she 'dodged bullets' during her husband’s presidency.

O'Reilly concluded: 'If there is one politician in the country who should be advertising Teflon? It's Hillary Clinton.
