    You can't say Hillary doesn't know how to rob the taxpayers. Imagine what she could do a President if she can pull this off as a private citizen.

    What, now you're trying to convince us that you don't secretly pine for Hillary?

    Easy to defend: former first ladies get secret service protection for life. They are high-profile targets while traveling, and Hillary, also being a recent Secretary of State, would be a prime target indeed and a high security risk. It's a matter of national prestige to protect her. Imagine if some harm came for a former first lady, the propaganda value for a terrorist group would be high.

    When you travel with secret service protection overseas, only certain lodging and vehicle arrangements meet their protocol, particularly for a high-risk subject under protection.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Hillary doesn't really want ANYONE to pay for all of this elaborate protection. But if she wants to do a book tour - shouldn't she be free to do so? - this kind of protection is pretty much required. It would be foolish for her to go without it. But why should SHE have to pay for it?

    When George W. Bush travels somewhere, he too is protected. Does he pay all the bills when he travels? I doubt it.

    And the costs are a pittance for our government compared to everything else we do.
