Hillary Clinton has distanced herself from President Barack Obama on a number of high-profile issues since starting her bid for the White House.That strategy could pose problems for Clinton in the long run as Republicans look for fodder to portray her as representing Obama's third term should she win the Democratic nomination.As she faces an unexpected challenge from Sanders in the early voting states, Clinton's move to portray herself as an heir to Obama's policies is aimed at courting young voters and progressives who are part of the president's political base.Republicans welcomed the opening Clinton provided for them to cast her White House run as a bid for a third Obama term.Democratic strategist Richard Socarides, a Clinton supporter, said Republicans were bound to portray her potential presidency as a third Obama term anyway.
