One sunny day in 2008, an old man approached the White House from across
Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench.
He spoke to the Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in

The Marine replied, "Sir, Mrs. Clinton is not the President and doesn't
The old man said, "Okay," and walked away.
The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to
the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary
The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mrs. Clinton
is not the President and doesn't reside here."
The man thanked him and again walked away . . .

very same Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President
The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and
said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to
