If Hillary Clinton is elected President in 2016

Would she mirror her husband Bill, who embraced former Goldman Sachs 

executive Robert Rubin's vision to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act, deregulate the telecom industry and sign the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which exempted credit-default swaps from government oversight? 

Or will she follow in the footsteps of President Barack Obama, who signed the Affordable Care Act, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act and created the Consumer Financial Protection Board on the way to raising taxes on the country's highest earners for the first time since the late-1990s?

Mrs Clinton tweeted after Mr Trump's latest success: "Donald Trump is the presumptive GOP (Republican National Convention) nominee. Chip in now if you agree we can't let him become president"

So the real presidential race has not started yet?

Campaigning will step up a gear ahead of the US general election on November 8.

The two candidates will mount whirlwind tours of the nation to press their case to voters. There will also be three key televised presidential debates in the last six weeks before the nation goes to the polls.

Mr Trump, complete with his unfavourable ratings with Hispanic and female voters, will have a fight to become the next resident of the White House. There are also many states which lean more to the Democrats than the Republicans.
