    "This is from a former Secret Service Officer who
    was detailed to guard the Presidents and his family."


    _________________________________________



    SECRET SERVICE OPINIONS WHAT WAS, COULD HAVE
    BEEN, AND WHAT IS

    What was:

    Hillary Clinton was arrogant and orally abusive to
    her security detail. She forbade her daughter, Chelsea,
    from exchanging pleasantries with them.

    Sometimes Chelsea, miffed at her mothers obvious
    conceit and mean spiritedness ignored her demands and
    exchanged pleasantries regardless, but

    never in her mother presence.
    Chelsea really was a nice, kind hearted, and

    lovely young lady. The consensus opinion was that
    Chelsea loved her mom but did not like her.

    Hillary Clinton was constituently rude and abrasive
    to those who were charged to protect her life.
    Her security detail dutifully did their job, as professionals
    should, but they all "loathed " her and wanted to be on a

    different detail. She was hard work because she was
    so nasty and mean toward her detail. Hillary Clinton was
    uniformly despised by the secret service as a whole.


    Former president Bill Clinton was much more amiable
    than his wife Hillary.
    Often the secret service would cringe at the verbal
    attack antics that Hillary would use against her husband,
    the then president. They were embarrassed for his sake by
    the manner and frequency in which she verbally insulted him,
    sometimes in the presence of the

    secret service, and sometimes behind closed doors.
    Even behind closed door Hillary Clinton would scream

    and holler so loudly that everyone could hear what
    she was saying. Many felt sorry for President Clinton and
    most wondered why he tolerated it instead of just divorcing his
    "attack dog" wife. It was crystal clear that

    the Clinton's neither liked or respected each other
    and this was true long before the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
    Theirs was genuinely a "marriage of convenience."


    Chelsea was much closer to her father than her
    mother, even after the Lewinsky scandal which hurt her gravely.
    Bill Clinton did in fact have "charisma," and occasionally would
    smile at or shake hands with his security detail.
    Still, he always displayed an obvious air of superiority towards

    them. His security detail uniformly believed him to
    be disingenuous, false, and that he did nothing without a motive that in
    some way would enhance his image and political career. They did respect
    him, unlike his wife, but they did not particularly like him and nobody
    trusted him. He was polite, but not kind.


    What could have been:

    Al Gore was the male version of Hillary Clinton.
    They were more friendly toward each other than either of them
    were towards former President Clinton.

    They were not intimate, so please don't read that in.
    They were very close in a political way. Tipper Gore was generally
    nice and pleasant. She initially liked Hillary but soon after the election

    she had her pegged and no longer liked her or associated with her
    except for events that were politically obligatory.


    Al Gore was far more left wing and very hateful, not
    just politically opposed, to Republicans than Bill Clinton. Al Gore
    resented Bill Clinton and thought he was to centrist. He despised all
    republicans. His hatred was bitter and this was long before he
    announced for the presidency. This bitter hatred was something
    that he and Hillary had very much in common.

    They often said as much, even in the presence of
    their security detail. Neither of them trusted Bill Clinton and,
    the secret service opined, neither of them even liked Bill Clinton.
    Bill Clinton did have some good qualities where Al Gore and Hillary
    had none in the view of their security details.


    AL Gore, like Hillary, was very rude and arrogant
    toward his security detail. He was extremely unappreciative
    and would not hesitate to scold them in the presence of their
    peers for minor details over which they had no control.
    Al Gore also looked down on them in disgust as they finally

    observed and learned with certainty on one occasion
    when Al Gore got angry at his offspring and loudly, in their presence,
    pointed at his security detail and said "do you want to grow up and
    be like them." Word of this insulting and demeaning verbiage by the
    former Vice-president quickly spread and he became as despised and
    disliked by the secret service as Hillary.


    Most of them prayed that Al Gore would not be elected president and they
    really did have private small celebrations in a few of their homes after
    President Bush won. This was not necessarily to celebrate President Bush's
    election, but to celebrate AL Gore's defeat. He was very disliked. Al Gore
    was not a good and kind person. That he could have been our President may
    suggest that God was "answering prayers" and looking out for the country
    with Al Gore's defeat.

    What is:

    Everyone in the secret service wants to be on First Lady Laura Bush's
    detail. Without exception they uniformly concede that she is perhaps the
    most nice, kind, and genuinely good person they have ever had the privilege
    of serving. Where Hillary patently refused to allow her picture to be taken
    with her security detail, Laura Bush doesn't even have to be asked, she
    offers. She doesn't just shake their hand and say thank you, very often
    she will give them a kind hearted hug to members of her detail to express
    her appreciation. There is nothing false about her. This is her genuine
    nature.


    Laura Bush really is this kind of a person and her security detail considers
    her to be a "breath of fresh air." They actually love her as a human being.
    They joke that comparing Laura Bush with Hillary Clinton is like comparing
    Mother Teresa with the Wicked Witch of the North.

    Likewise, the secret service considers President Bush to be a gem of a man
    to work for. He always treats them with genuine respect and he always
    trusts and listens to their expert advice. They especially like the Crawford
    detail.
    Every time the president goes to Crawford he has a Bar-B-Q for his security
    detail and "he" helps serve them. He eats with them, sits with them, and
    talks
    with them. He always asks about their family, the names of which he always
    remembers, and he of course knows each of them by their first name and calls
    them by their first name as a show of affection.

    They believe that he actually loves his security detail and that he is
    deeply and genuinely appreciative of their service.
    They could not like, love, or respect anyone more than President Bush,
    and most of them did not know they would feel this way until they had an
    opportunity to work for him and learn that his manner was genuine and
    consistent. It has never changed in the three years that he has been
    president.
    He always treats them with the utmost respect, kindness, and compassion.


    Please pass this on to everyone you know. It is important for everyday
    Americans to have a true inside understanding of their President and those
    who would be president.
    Finally, The secret service still is forming an opinion on John Kerry.
    They have nothing positive or negative to say that anyone is willing to
    share as yet. This notwithstanding, they already know what they have in
    President Bush and they don't want to lose a good thing. [/QUOTE]

    I can't contridict their observations as to how they were treated, I wasn't there.

    Their observations as to political attributes are questionable, however.
