Vice President Joe Biden will end up running for the Democratic presidential nomination because the party needs an "insurance policy" in case current front-runner Hillary Clinton is indicted, conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer says.

"I think the reason he wants to be in there is if lightning strikes," Krauthammer said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Special Report." 

"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," Krauthammer said.

"Imagine if this happened, she got knocked out for some reason. Is the party really going to nominate a Vermont socialist in his mid-70s?" he said. "That’s inconceivable."

It might be a long shot, Krauthammer said, but if something derails Clinton's nomination he would be "in the position to be the one to whom everybody would turn."

Clinton is set to testify on Thursday before the House Selected Committee on Benghazi. That investigation also is focusing on Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State and whether classified information was sent over the unsecured system.
