Protecting the president

What are the presidents of the U.S. really like? The Secret Service agents who guard them know, and some of them apparently have shared their stories. A new book says tales from the bodyguards reveal that Kennedy and Johnson chased skirts, Nixon was weird, Ford was cheap, Carter was a hypocrite, Reagan, Bush I and Bush II considerate, and Bill Clinton was OK but Hillary a monster. Obama is reported to be a decent man, but Al Gore was obnoxious.

I never have understood why someone would want to be a bodyguard for the president, but I am glad there are people with that preference.
