Presidential Politics and Family History

Hosted by

Bill Clinton staked out the political center, appealing to undecided voters and even Republicans. Hillary’s going the other direction. Saturday, in the first major policy speech of her presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton talked about income inequality and education, saying GOP hopefuls "believe in yesterday."

Can the former Secretary of State, US Senator and First Lady bring out the base of her own party, including blacks and Latinos? Also today, Republican Jeb Bush is formally declaring his candidacy -- with new branding that drops his last name. Can a Clinton or a Bush meet the challenge of voters who might be looking for something new?
