    Good post. I'll add my thoughts inside the quote bubble. (Note: these are perceptions I have had from a distance, not first-hand or second-hand info)

    here is what they told me

    Ronald Reagan-decent guy-Nancy was a bitch, Ron Jr an asshole I always felt the same about both Ron & Nancy. No opinion on Jr.

    Carter-phony Rosalyn decent, amy a brat Jimmy surprises me, but the other two I felt the same.

    GHWB. great guy-treated the agents and military like professionals, Threw snappy salutes to medal of honor winners. one war hero to another. Mrs Bush treated agents etc like family. If someone was sick Mrs Bush showed up with soup everyone loved her I can see Bush I being that way, no doubt. I always thought Barbara came off as the most genuinely nicest person. Glad to hear she is.

    Clinton-liked him. despite his claims of loathing the military, he treated servicemen and agents with respect I never liked the guy politically, but thought he would be ok personally.

    Hillary-the worst-referred to a medal of honor winner in an honor guard "as the help" Does not surprise me one bit.

    Chelsea-well liked by the agents Nice polite girl who had no arrogance Also does not surprise me. She always seemed well-rounded and well-raised.

    W-well liked-treated people like his fraternity brothers. Not nearly as formal as his father or even Reagan or Clinton. Interesting. When he first took office he insisted that everybody keep their suit coats on and buttoned even while sitting at a desk, so I always thought he was way too formal. Maybe that was for work only, and I can see how he might be less formal away from the office.

    genuinely interested in people. I believe that.

    wife Laura-a bit like her mother in law I believe that, as well.

    girls-not as formal and polite as Chelsea but well liked. not arrogant at all (Ron Reagan jr was the winner of the arrogance award) I had heard that Jenna was kind of wild and Barbara was more down-to-earth, though I never heard of either being a bad person.

    the one guy I know who was on an Obama detail is still in the service-no comment but I haven't heard anything bad about the man from secondary sources Always seemed like a decent guy to me, though I'm not sure I'd have much in common with him.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I would suspect that SS instructions are a little different outside our country. Not outright forbidden to act that way, but warned to be very careful.

    I don't disagree, but we always seem to be more worried about causing an international incident with other countries than other countries do with us.
