MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was ecstatic over former President Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic Convention last night.

“Years from now we may look back at tonight and remember Bill Clinton’s speech as one of the greatest in convention history.” Matthews said. “No one, including President Obama himself, has made a better case for Obama than Bill Clinton did tonight.”

Matthews then praised Clinton’s “incredible gestures” during the speech towards the Obama family.  “They’re going to teach these in school someday,” he said.

Later in the segment, Matthews offered a more peculiar analysis.

“I always figured that if Bill Clinton landed on Mars. He would know how to do it with them. He would know how to reproduce,” Matthews said. “He would know everything. He would just instinctively know how to talk to people. They would be laughing in about five minutes. The Martians.”
