8. campaign finance reform
It's all because of the new campaign finance rules about fund raising. In particular the matching funds thing and the ban on soft money. Normally it would be about now that things would get started.

It makes sense for these candidates to start early too, considering none of them can be considered to be the superstars of the party (I'm speaking of name recognition only here, before anyone gets too defensive. :)) and they really need to build up the name recognition.

I suspect that there had to be a sense of urgency too after last fall's elections, but I could just be projecting.
