Hillary Clinton will have an easy walk to the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, but won't pose a significant threat to Republicans in the general election, says Charles Krauthammer.

"The status she enjoys among Democrats is semi-divine," the conservative pundit said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Special Report."  "It's not going to be a coronation, it's going to be a worship service."

That will last about six months, Krauthammer predicted, as Clinton will face no serious challengers. There might be "noise" from the left, he said, but it won't be significant.

"I don't see any impediment on the way to her nomination," Krauthammer said, but predicted Clinton will "be a relatively weak opponent" and Republicans will have "a really good shot at the White House."
