[music |Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head - B.J. Thomas]

In 1965, Congress authorized the Secret Service to protect former presidents and their spouses for their lifetime, unless they decline the protection. Recently, Congress limited the protection of former presidents and their spouses (elected after January 1, 1997) to 10 years after leaving office. President Clinton, who was elected in 1996, will be the last president to receive lifelong protection from the Secret Service.

Modern Love Song. :) Very fun.

And WOW! So, I totally suck. The last two months I have not posted your first posting stats. Many apologies! I finally got them all together, so here you be!

For Feb-
Congrats to saabisu who takes the cake with 3 first posts.
We have a FIVE WAY tie for second, with two posts each: coolbou , luludi ,poop_on_a_stick , actionjack , and electrosoundwav

And back in January, first place went to electrosoundwav with 3 first comments, and second was tied between nebris and saabisu with two each. So yes! Sorry that took me a while to get together. I am clearly a slacker.

Heh, ironic that Bush Dubya won't receive lifelong protection...any assassin worth his salt would get it over with during a president's presidency, though...

I just think as far as unpopular presidents go, our current one takes the cake. If I were him, and thank God I'm not, I'd probably hire full time security for me and mine after all that he's done.

By the way, I love your icon. Oh, Disney, how you ruined my early ideas of geography and culture.

Interesting. I think his family's good, because of the time, though they'll of course have great protection during the presidency, they're really careful there.

I think if they determine that protection is still needed, they will continue to protect the individual. Children of the president are usually cut off at 18 (I believe) unless there is a threat. What will happen if Hillary wins (I don't think she will). Will her 10 years override her husbands lifetime protection?
