    Remember when Saddam tried to have Pappy Bush snuffed?  The assasination of an ex-president would be nearly as bad as that of a sitting president as far as national security goes.  A military response would be required, good enough reason for me to keep them guarded for life.  Last thing we need is another neocon wet dream in the mideast because some wacko got a lucky shot at an ex-president.

      ...which is why ex-Presidents get Secret Service protection.

      But an ex-President isn't nearly as much of a national security interest as the sitting President, for obvious reasons.
