Who can you trust?

This story kind of pisses me off. It's about a book of interviews with secret service agents.
They're talking about what the presidents were like away from the cameras.

It's mostly what you would expect with a surprise or two. Both Bushes and Ronnie Raygun come out okay, Clinton, somewhat surprisingly, comes out well too.
Hillary, Gorequemada and Jimmy Carter come off as total POSes. Carter, for instance, used to make a show of carrying his luggage for the cameras but it was empty (just like him), he made others carry his real luggage.

WTF? He's a freaking cartoon character and always has been.

Obama, surprisingly enough, comes out okay too. Of course, I don't see someone working for Obama saying, "Yeah, he's a real asshole". They don't mention it in the article, but I wonder how the First Worf treats them.

The point.....
Shouldn't these people be keeping their mouths shut? Seriously, their job is to protect the President of the United States of America, he has to be able to trust them without fail.

We can't have these people blabbing to People magazine or Jerry Springer.

If you can't accept that you have to keep your mouth shut even though you have access to some seriously historic info, you shouldn't take the job.
I'm actually surprised there isn't a non-disclosure agreement.

I might buy the bcook, or at least read it, but that doesn't mean I think it should have been written.
