 TOKYO -- As if economic uncertainty in China, gyrating oil prices and perennial conflict in the Middle East were not enough, U.S. and global financial markets have something new to fret over. Call it "Hillary risk."

     Hillary Clinton, the former U.S. secretary of state and front-runner for the Democratic nomination in next year's presidential election, came out against the Trans-Pacific Partnership on Wednesday. Her announcement came one day after 12 Asia-Pacific countries reached a broad agreement on the trade liberalization initiative, bringing years of tortuous negotiations to a close.
