On "Special Report" tonight, Charles Krauthammer reacted to rumors that Joe Biden is seriously considering jumping in the 2016 race.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest noted Monday that President Obama had said in the past that adding Biden "to the ticket as his running mate was the smartest decision that he had ever made in politics."

Krauthammer said that Earnest's comments are a broad hint that the president would support Biden if he decided to run.

He explained that for Democrats who are in a panic over Hillary Clinton's email scandal and questions about her trustworthiness, Biden could be an excellent alternative.

Krauthammer said that the perfect play for Biden could be to run with Elizabeth Warren, planning on being a one-term president while establishing her as his successor.

"If you have her as your heir, he gets the entire base, the liberals have a vision of a 12-year rule. It would work perfectly for them."
