Clinton's Break with Obama Not Likely the Last

WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton's split with President Barack Obama over a foreign policy "organizing principle" isn't likely to be the last time their differences emerge.

How Clinton handles those breaks could be among her biggest hurdles if she runs for president in 2016.

Clinton's status as the leading potential Democratic candidate had led to intense scrutiny of her record and comparisons to Obama.

While Obama and Clinton share similar views in many areas, the former first lady's interview with The Atlantic offered her most significant break with her onetime campaign rival. In the interview she said "'don't do stupid stuff' is not an organizing principle" in foreign policy.

Clinton will likely seek some separation from Obama if she runs, but getting distance from a two-term president can be tricky.
