This would mark Clinton's second time announcing her bid. Clinton last ran for the Democratic nomination back in 2008, but lost the bid to President Obama. According to Bloomberg, the former Secretary of State will focus on Iowa after learning from her failure during the 2008 caucuses when she came in third after Obama and John Edwards.
