Huan Yi, actually, I was a bit surprised. Like I said, it is entirely appropriate that in these times of "war," the third in line should be protected from any risk of harm and that would include her family, just like it does the President and VP. It's the delegation and extended family that I question. My daughter came up with something interesting....she said, maybe she wants the delegation to have its use so that she does not come across as being haughty or exclusionary. It would save taxpayer money if they all travel together, I guess, or would it? I mean, they have to travel and their travel is paid for by us anyway.
Brad, I don't think this displaces military people, but I'm not really sure. The Speaker of House has had this benefit in the past...she just wants to expand it.
