As Hillary Rodham Clinton launches her second run for the White House, two political analysts weighed in on her candidacy and her prospects for the 2016 presidential race.

ABC's Chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, and political analyst Jeanne Zaino joined us on Eyewitness News Sunday Morning.


Clinton will enter the race as the overwhelming favorite for her party's nomination. Still, her team has said her early strategy is designed to avoid appearing to take that nomination for granted.

The early events will include discussions at colleges, day care centers and private homes, and stops at coffee shops and diners. After about a month of such events, Clinton will give a broader speech outlining more specifics about her rationale for running.

Clinton's husband, Bill, and daughter, Chelsea, are unlikely to appear at her early events. Bill Clinton, the former two-term president, said recently that he wanted to play a role as a "backstage adviser" in his wife's campaign. Advisers said Bill Clinton has been engaged with his wife in some of the policy discussions leading up to this weekend's rollout.

To prepare for the campaign, Clinton has spent months meeting with economic policy experts, including Heather Boushey, whose research focuses on inequality, and Teresa Ghilarducci, a labor economist and retirement policy expert. The policy development process has been overseen by aides Jake Sullivan and Dan Schwerin.
