I was watching the dvd extras of "The Sentinel" with Eva Longoria, kiefer Sutherland and Michael Douglas and they were talking about the secret service and their roles. the director said that for for every president , first lady and presidents children have and will be proctected for life, Whereas the Secret service will only protect George W Bush for 10 years after he leaves office.. :rolleyes: ...

That is quite odd, why protect the wife and children forever but not him?

The president is protected for life also if they were elected before 1997. I think congress passed legislation that would prohibit it. The wife and children are protected for life if the president is killed.
