In this April 15, 2015, photo, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, second from right, visits with local residents at The Tremont in Marshalltown, Iowa. This time around, Clinton wants to be on liberals’ good side. In 2008, the then-first time presidential candidate opposed gay marriage, equivocated on granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, and took a beating from rival Barack Obama over her stance on campaign finance. During the first week of her second presidential campaign, Clinton ticked through those missteps one by one, carefully retooling her positions to line up with the views of progressive Democrats.(AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)
