During the Internet broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report Online” Wednesday, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer told viewers why the odds of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton replacing Vice President Joe Biden on the Democrats’ 2012 presidential ticket are very low.

“I’d say that the Indianapolis Colts have a better chance of winning the Super Bowl,” Krauthammer said. “And I have only one reason for saying that, and that is Obama’s — I say this not as a clinician — narcissism.”

“Obama, I think, can never bring himself to do something very large, like this, which would show that he needs the Clintons, particularly Hillary, to win.”

“I just think for Obama to show himself as being weak and needing this to win is more than he can ever muster,” Krauthammer added. “So I think the odds are low. I could be wrong — rarely, but it’s happened.”
