President Takes the Time

This is the kind of story that makes me believe that for all his many faults and missteps, President Bush is still the honorable man I believed him to be when I first voted for him. It was a security person's nightmare for the President to do what he did, but I believe that the sentiments he expressed made up for that in the good will it engendered.

I've been involved with the local security details for visits by four US Presidents during my tenure as a LEO, and I can tell you from experience that something like this is a really big deal. For a president to break security to personally thank one of the "little people" in the manner he did speaks volumes about the character of the man

I once had the opportunity to shake President Ronald Reagan's hand in the course of a detail, and I can tell you that it is an experience I'll never forget. And that was just a case of being in the right place in the right time, it wasn't a determined break in security protocall to express graditude to one of those that was just there to do his job.
