Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday on “Special Report” that former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who has been dogged by questions about her email, sees a viable challenger for the race to the White House in Vice President Biden… and she has reason to worry.
“The reason she had to cut short her vacation, the reason she is scared is, up until now, no matter how bad things got, there was no alternative,” Krauthammer said. “She had no opponent.”
As Biden mulls over a presidential run, President Obama’s press secretary stopped short of saying the commander-in-chief would endorse his vice president if he declares his candidacy.
“The words coming out of the White House… earlier in the week was pretty ominous [for Clinton],” Krauthammer said, “[The president said] choosing [Biden] was the best decision Obama ever made, when obviously he chose Hillary as well. So it was a signal.”
Krauthammer went on to say that could spell trouble for the Clinton campaign.
“If she loses Obama’s support, if there is only a hint or a rod to the previous Obama supporters, bundlers, et cetera that his choice of successor is Biden, it could create a real challenge,” he concluded.
