Hillary Clinton thrilled the crowd with her response to Anderson Cooper on email

"Do you want to respond?" "No."

Hillary Clinton got some of the biggest applause of the night at the CNN Democratic debate with just one word: No.

Democratic contender Lincoln Chafee took the bait on a question from Anderson Cooper about Clinton's emails, suggesting Clinton had done something shady as secretary of state: "I think we need somebody with the best and ethical standards as our next president. That's how I feel."

Cooper turned to Clinton: "Secretary Clinton, do you want to respond?"

Clinton: "No."

And that was that.
