Hillary Rodham Clinton came to Iowa to give voters an intimate glance of who she'd be as president.In 2008, Clinton lost the caucuses – and ultimately the nomination – to Barack Obama, a stunning defeat for the former first lady who had been considered the Democratic primary front-runner that year.On her second try, Clinton appears unlikely to face a formidable Democratic opponent. On a two-day swing through Iowa, the opening act of her 2016 campaign, Clinton embraced two of the most politically fraught planks of Obama's legacy: the health care law and the push for an immigration overhaul. But even as she cast herself as continuing Obama's domestic policies, Clinton carefully drew a subtle contrast between her leadership and the president's.Already, Republicans are stressing the deep ties between the two, describing Clinton's candidacy as a "third Obama term".
