Hillary Rodham Clinton called for a new era of shared prosperity in America and told thousands at a presidential campaign rally Saturday that workers can trust her to fight for them.

"It's America's basic bargain," Clinton said. "If you do your part, you ought to be able to get ahead, and when everybody does their part, America gets ahead too.

"That bargain inspired generations of American families, including my own," the former secretary of state and first lady said.

In the first major speech of her second campaign for president, Clinton portrayed herself as a fierce advocate for those left behind after the recession.

She cited President Barack Obama, and former Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Bill Clinton, her husband, and said they embraced the idea that "real and lasting prosperity must be built by all and shared by all." (AP)
