Preparing for 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton embracing Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton is embracing President Barack Obama — sometimes even literally.

As she prepares for another presidential campaign, Clinton has aligned herself with Obama far more than she has disagreed with him.

The early moves counter speculation that Clinton would try to separate herself from the president to avoid the impression that having her in the White House would amount to a third Obama term.

Clinton met with Obama at the White House on Monday and later tweeted a list of some of the accomplishments of the president's health care law.

Clinton declared, "Repeal those things? Embrace them!"

Her Twitter posting included an old photo of herself extending her arms to hug Obama at the White House.
