Over at Instapundit, Stephen Green offers a pretty gentle view of the matter;
It takes a special kind of commitment to join the Secret Service. You have to be willing to die — not for a noble cause, not for your home or family, not for a comrade in war, but for a person, a stranger, simply because they hold a particular office. I’m not certain I could make that kind of commitment, which is why I would never consider a job with the Secret Service. If Kerry O’Grady can’t make that kind of commitment, she needs to reconsider her job.
Seems to me that someone higher up at the Secret Service should be helping her with that reconsideration, right now.
