WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton is sketching an agenda for her first 100 days in office that includes the beginning of a troop withdrawal from Iraq and signing legislation that President George W. Bush vetoed.

The New York senator said Tuesday, "In short, starting from Day One, the Bush-Cheney era will be over in name and in practice."

Looking beyond the competitive race for the Democratic nomination, she also said that within 100 days of becoming president, she would ask Congress to reverse some of Bush's tax cuts, tackle global warming and urge Canada and Mexico to renegotiate NAFTA.

Clinton made her remarks in an appearance before newspaper editors at their annual convention.
