Bachelet begins Chile's transition

Former president is promising major reforms as she returns to power.

    A day after she was swept to power for a second time, Chile's president-elect Michelle Bachelet is promising major social changes.

    The left-leaning Bachelet left office in 2010 as Chile's most popular president in history.

    Bachelet knows that there are huge expectations of her, and not just among those who voted for her.
