Hillary's in

Sen. Clinton Launches 2008 Campaign.

Yes, we all knew it, but still, this is exciting...her campaign managed to surprise with this.

There's a recent Zogby poll showing Obama on top in New Hampshire. Wouldn't you rather be her than him? He's got nowhere to go but down and it absolutely helps her to not be perceived as inevitable. The Post article and the NYTimes coverage both are cast in ways that emphasize the challenges for her. What other candidate warrants such special scrutiny? Gets the bar set so high?

I say, good, she's got nowhere to go but to exceed these expectations.
