After previously stating that the VA scandal was not as widespread as was being reported, Hillary Clinton reversed course on Tuesday and forcefully announced a plan to reform the agency's health care system.

Charles Krauthammer said on "Special Report" that Clinton's apparent "180" is all political.

"She's trying to cover her trail for her dismissiveness last week," Krauthammer said. "This solution is the classic liberal solution."

He pointed out that she used the exact same words - such as "examining the problem" and "no tolerance" - as President Obama did two years ago, with no results from the Obama administration since.

Krauthammer said the root problem - and the reason Democrats won't be able to address the issues at the VA - is that the party opposes the privatization of VA health care.

"What you really ought to do is give them vouchers to go anywhere they want. But a Democrat will never consider that, because it gives a person choice."
