Hillary Rodham Clinton has jumped back into presidential politics, making a much-awaited announcement she will again seek the White House in 2016 with a promise to serve as the "champion" of everyday Americans in a country with growing income inequality.Unlike eight years ago, when she ran and lost to Barack Obama, Clinton and her personal history weren't the focus of the first message of her campaign Sunday. Clinton hopes to avoid the same stumbles in 2008, when she entered the race as a heavy favorite only to be upset by Obama in Iowa.As Obama's secretary of state, Clinton used her four years as America's top diplomat in an attempt to rebuild U.S. relations with countries around the world that had become critical of the American war in Iraq.Clinton enters the race with polls showing her in a strong position to succeed Obama. Republicans will try to counter Clinton's strong resume by casting her as someone who is not trustworthy. Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus said Clinton's election would be tantamount to giving Obama a "third term".
