I disagree. It's much harder to play AA from early position than from late position. You're probably going to lose a much bigger pot with AA from early position than late, because if you have to fold, you'll be able to. From early position, however, you're probably going to be betting into a problem or chasing away your profits. AA is a MUCH more profitable hand from late position, as is any hand.
The key in cash games is profit. Every hand is far more valuable in later position; position even changes your starting hand range, pre-flop raising range, 3-bet range, etc. Information is everything and late position gets the most info and thus, is allowed to make the most informed decision to best maximize profits or minimize losses.
