Clinton tries again to crack 'highest glass ceiling' with White House bid

By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) – Hillary Clinton will take another stab at cracking what she calls “the highest and hardest glass ceiling” on Sunday when she starts a long-awaited second run for the White House as the prohibitive Democratic front runner. Clinton’s campaign for the November 2016 election will emphasize her plans to address economic inequality and will tout the historic nature of her bid to become the first woman U.S. president, aides say. Clinton, who lost a heavyweight Democratic nominating battle to Barack Obama in 2008, will announce her campaign on video and social media, a Democrat familiar with her plans said. We know this campaign will be won on the ground, in states,” he said in the campaign memo, titled “We Are Hillary for America.” Many Democrats have eagerly awaited Sunday’s announcement since the day in June 2008 when Clinton pulled out of her primary battle against Obama with an expression of regret that she could not crack “that highest and hardest glass ceiling this time.” On Saturday at the Americas summit in Panama City, Obama said at a news conference that Clinton would make an “excellent president.” Opinion polls show Clinton has a huge lead over potential 2016 Democratic rivals, and few are expected to enter the race.
