It's probably Secret Service procedure to land after an incident no matter how insignificant it seems to us. Given it's 3 days to the election where he could become VP of the US it's not that surprising.

During presidential elections, once it becomes fairly clear who the opposing canidates will they are offered Secret Service protection. Just think of the implications of being able to easily off your opponent who does not have the protection the incumbent has.

John Kerry and John Edwards started recieving secret service protection three days after Howard Dean dropped from the race, when It was clear that one of them was going to be candidate, I wonder if the Secret Service has to protect Nader or the libertarian guy?

I am pretty sure Nader has had some secret service too. Perhaps not as much, but I am pretty sure that at least during the 2000 election I saw pictures of him with secret service guys. But, he had more following back then too, so I dont know.

So he's a trial lawyer, so WHAT, you want somebody who knows how to fight and win for your interests especially on the international front. He knows how to talk to different constituencies and convince them of his position, if he gets elected his position will be that of the United States of America, if anything its a good thing.
