What's Behind Hillary Clinton's Early Start?

First Read: "What's interesting is that in talks with strategists on both sides of the aisle, there is universal head-scratching over her decision to engage this early. The long campaign didn't help Clinton in 2007-2008. Short campaigns are always more helpful to well-known front-runners. (See: Booker, Cory.) But if you're Clinton, you may be thinking that you need to make sure there is no room on your left for another Obama, and it could be why she's willing to risk her bipartisan political standing so early. Then again, that's fighting the last war."
