Krauthammer: Biden to Run As ‘Insurance Policy’ in Case Hillary Indicted

On Monday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer sounded off on the prospects of Vice President Joe Biden entering the contest for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

According to Krauthammer, Biden’s presence in the field will be necessary if current Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s campaign encounters a pitfall and Democrats need someone besides Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as a back-up plan.

“One of the reasons I think he’ll get in, and I think at this point he probably will … I think the reason he wants to be in there is if lightning strikes,” Krauthammer said. “In other words, if she is struck by something else, an act of God, meaning an act of the FBI, some indictment, something just truly destructive from which she can’t recover, uncovered by something out of the campaign, he wants to be there standing as the insurance policy.”
