      Apparently recognition of the boundless crazy in this country trumped the relatively minimal cost savings.

        and even Bill, with Obama remaining a big target as long as he is alive, the Secret Service had little trouble getting Congress to figure out that was not a good idea. No matter how much the RW hoped and prayed Bill would take a hit.

        Of course the cynic in me says the Bushes and Cheney put pressure on them because of the expense. And they found out what our response to 9/11 did to their threat levels.

      that.  All Presidents deserve continued protection if they want it, there are just so many people or groups who might want to target a former President that it just makes sense.  I'm sure we can afford it if we build on less warplane or something.
