Recommended link; Secret Service drops security for Clinton and Obama...

Please go read today's post by Teresa Nielson Hayden -- "The Secret Service writes off security for candidates" -- at http://www.nielsenhayden.com/makinglight . According to that post, which includes reports from a host of other sources and from eyewitnesses, the Secret Service has been screening people at the Clinton and Obama campaign events for an hour or two, and then ordering the screening to be stopped and letting in everybody still in line without any kind of checking at all.

There are no reports in the post of that happening at any Republican campaign event, so I went to Google to hunt for some of those; I didn't find any. If you can find one (or more), I'd be grateful to have the links.

I'd be pleased to have a logical explanation for this phenomenon. At the moment, it terrifies me.
