With appearance in Iowa, Clinton takes a big step toward 2016
News ImageBy Gabriel Debenedetti INDIANOLA Iowa (Reuters) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stoked speculation on Sunday that she was moving closer to announcing a bid for the White House in 2016 as she visited the early-voting state of Iowa to take part in the state's annual "steak fry," a gathering of Democratic activists that often attracts presidential hopefuls. After grilling steaks with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton delivered a populist speech to the crowd of more than 6,000 Democrats at a vast green field a few miles outside of Des Moines. She defended President Barack Obama's signature healthcare initiative known as Obamacare, pushed legislation on a minimum wage and lambasted Republicans as "guardians of gridlock." Clinton focused much of her speech on promoting Iowa's Democratic candidates, including Senate hopeful Bruce Braley, who is vying in a closely watched race in the 2014 midterm elections on Nov. 4.

Clinton tells Iowa she's 'thinking about it' ahead of 2016
News ImageAppearing Sunday in Iowa, a critical state in the US presidential election cycle, Hillary Clinton joked about her potential 2016 White House bid, telling Democratic supporters she was "thinking about it." The former secretary of state, who says she will announce next year whether she will run for president, attended an annual "Steak Fry" hosted by retiring Democratic Senator Tom Harkin, where she stumped for Iowa candidates ahead of midterm elections in November. I am thinking about it," Clinton said, in apparent reference to a White House bid. Iowa, a small farming state of 3.1 million, holds disproportionate sway in US presidential politics due to its caucuses, which are the first-in-the-nation nominating event each election cycle.

Sweden votes for minority left government, far right surges
News ImageBy Simon Johnson and Johan Sennero STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden's centre-left Social Democrat leader Stefan Lofven emerged as victor in Sunday's general election after a voter backlash against tax cuts and trimmed welfare by a centre-right government, but faced challenges forming a strong coalition as he fell short of a parliamentary majority. The Nordic region's biggest economy and one of the few star performers in Europe now faces a weak minority government with a possible political impasse as the anti-immigrant far right emerged as the third biggest party to hold the balance of power. Lofven's Social Democrats and two other opposition parties, the Greens and Left, garnered 43.7 percent of the vote, against 39.3 percent for Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt's coalition. Now Sweden has answered that we need a change." After all but two of 5,837 voting districts had been counted, the three centre-left parties - who have not as yet created a formal bloc - won 158 parliamentary seats, short of the 175 needed for a majority.
