Hillary The Unlikable

The Daily Sheeple looks at what I'm guessing is a recently published book on the lives of Secret Service agents. According to the book agents consider being assigned to guarding Hillary Clinton to be a form of punishment. Believable to me as I've read similar sentiments elsewhere. 

I might have mentioned here before a commentary by a guy saying Hillary would never be elected because of the same sort of thing. He wrote, to paraphrase, "When husband Bill walks into the room, the place lights up because people liked him. When Hillary walks in, the room goes cold...".

Perhaps she's the most unlikable current politician, or at least most well known. Back in the day I read something about older presidents and agent's impression of them. Worst president to work for: Lyndon Johnson, him treating agents like servants and having them carry his bags and such. 

Best one to work for: Jimmy Carter, who let them stay in guest housing on his farm and them fish in his pond, among other things. A genuinely pleasant guy!

I shook hands with carter in LA once. The niceness radiated out from him. He will be missed.

I felt that about Carter even back during his term and I would have considered myself a moderate Republican. He seemed like a genuinely decent fellow.

Yes, a decent fellow, eaten up by Washington. The worst was the incident that coined the term 'October Surprise.'

Don't worry about Clinton. She stands no chance when Biden announced his bid.

er, that should be present tense... 'when Biden announces his bid.' Unless, of course, you're reading this comment after he has announced.

We should be guided by what Secret Service agents say about their presidential assignments?

Then by that standard they must really love them some Obama with all the time they seem to have to go out and get drunk and get involved in sex scandals too, whether home or abroad. Must be Obama's fault.

Pardon me if I don't give a ratz ass about what the Secret Service thinks. Sounds like they're all looking for perks. Just shut the f up and do your goddam job, boys.
