A little comfort I suppose, given how she has to live her life.

The Wilders link you left me shed some light on how it must be to have to travel with your own personal protection squad, but I do have to say he looked right at home with the likes of Hannity.

He may be right on a lot of issues, that doesn't mean you have to like the guy.
