For Hillary Clinton, a re-airing of past episodes

By

WASHINGTON (AP) — For Hillary Rodham Clinton, the last few months might be comparable to a spring cleaning.

Think of it as an airing of her political past before she sets the course for her much speculated-about future.

As the former first lady and secretary of state mulls a 2016 presidential run, reminders of her past have re-emerged.

There's her husband's White House affair with Monica Lewinsky. And her ill-fated attempt to overhaul the health care system. And the deadly 2012 attack at a diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.

Republicans say the past could haunt Clinton if she runs again. Democrats say it could bring back memories of a strong economy.
