Charles Krauthammer looked back on the Democratic National Convention and Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech, saying that her speech was ultimately unsuccessful because of the "terrible dilemma" she is caught in.

"She was embraced by Obama, which makes her the status quo candidate. There's no way around that," Krauthammer said.

But he said her husband made a strategic move on Wednesday night, in recognition of the fact that -- for the past 60 years, with the exception of 1988 -- the same party has not held power for more than two terms in the White House.

"So what was the theme of his speech? She's a change agent. The biggest change maker he's ever seen in his life.

"I don't know how credible it is, but you cannot run as the heir to Obama and at the same time as a change agent. That's a dilemma she can't solve and she didn't in her speech, which is why it was a relatively unsuccessful one."

Watch the commentary above.
