Will Hillary Clinton's new book be cautious, like her 2008 campaign?

(CNN) – Is it just a book, or the world's longest résumé cover letter?
"Hard Choices," Hillary Clinton's memoir about her time as Secretary of State, hits shelves in about two weeks. On Monday, her publisher offered up a taste of what many think could potentially be the kick-off of her long, long rumored run for the White House, with a new excerpt and audio clip.

"As is usually the case with the benefit of hindsight, I wish we could go back and revisit certain choices. But I'm proud of what we accomplished," Clinton writes.

"These years were also a personal journey for me, both literally (I ended up visiting 112 countries and traveling nearly one million miles) and figuratively, from the painful end of the 2008 campaign to an unexpected partnership and friendship with my former rival Barack Obama. I've served our country in one way or another for decades. Yet during my years as Secretary of State, I learned even more about our exceptional strengths and what it will take for us to compete and thrive at home and abroad," she says.

CNN's Brianna Keilar and The New York Times' Peter Baker weigh in on the meaning behind the new excerpts.
