US PRESIDENTIAL CONVOYS

A columnist for a Philippine newspaper talks about the costs and massive preparations required by the US Secret Service whenever President Bush and other (US Presidents) travel outside of Washington DC.

I remember watching a CNN report that showed how big a US presidential convoy is, compared to the two vehicle transport being used by Prime Minister Tony Blair of the UK.

oh well, we have to understand that the US president is the most powerful man on earth and the United States is the world's only remaining superpower. You are merely protecting the presidency and not the person itself, the presidency is greater than any man. The British Prime Minister maybe the head of one of the highly industrialized nation but his foreign policy and influence is not as tough and enormous as that of the US president. Besides the Prime Minister is only the head of the government, the US president is both the head of the government and of the state.
